SIGNS TO DETECT SOME VISUAL DEFECT IN CHILDREN

SIGNS TO DETECT SOME VISUAL DEFECT IN CHILDREN

Children hardly complain about wrong visión, this is why it is important that parents, family and teachers know how to detect strange behaviours and external signs related to visual defects.


• When the child turns an eye, either usually or In certain situations.These situations must be found out.

• When the child turns the head while he is reading or when he reads the texts excessively close.

• When the child rubs his eyes more often than normal, closes an eye, says that his eyes are stinging or when he makes faces with the eyes in moments of visual concentration...

• When the child sklps lines while he is reading, when he follows the reading turning the head instead of turning the eyes.

 

HOW TO CHOOSE THE BEST GLASSES FOR CHILDREN?

Generally, learning difficulties may be due to undetected visual defects.
If your child has to wear glasses, you may have some doubts on which is the best option,
that is why we want to share this advice with you:


1. We must choose a frame suitable for the anatomy of the face.

Comfort is essential.
The glasses should not rest on the cheekbone or the forehead.
The side pieces must be of the right shape and length.

2. We must choose the most appropriate materials for the frames,
the material for the frame must be light and resistant.
Plastic frames have been and still are a good option.
Today we also have other very interesting materials such as silicone, rubber or grilamide.

3. The lenses must also be light and resistant.
The glass must be organic, comfortable for their weight.
We recommend choosing lenses with a hardener treatment in order to increase the resistance to scratches.
The antireflection treatment is highly recommended to improve the visual comfort and clarity. With the antireflection we achieve a vision similar to not wearing glasses.
Take into consideration the size of the lens so that they have a wide field of vision. This wideness will be determined by the frame we choose.

4. And, specially, as a mother or father, be tolerant of their personal tastes!

It is the key to success, for them to wear them happily. Once you have determined which models are suitable, let them make the final decision. It is important that they feel comfortable and like them.
Ask us about your doubts and at OPTICA SALAS we will advise you on the best option for you!
