Did you know?

The majority of babies are born long sighted.

Other interesting facts:

  • The muscles around the eye develop in the first six months of life
  • A baby needs to learn to see - obstacles such as congenital cataracts must be removed as soon as possible after birth else the baby will be blind even though the eyes are perfect
  • A child's vision is fully developed by the age of 8, but problems such as short sightedness may develop right through your child's growing up
  • Many eyesight defects can be inherited e.g. long or short sightedness
