There are a number of things parents can look out for that may indicate a child is having vision issues, according to Specsavers:
Specsavers Director of Optometry Peter Larsen said, in this age of staring at screens, eye testing was more vital than ever.
“Staring at screens and being indoors for extended periods of time can increase the risk of becoming short-sighted. This means the eyes focus well only on close objects, while more distant objects appear blurred,” he said.
“Children are more at risk, as their eyes are still developing.
“The biggest message I would like to get across to parents is to make sure their children spend time outside playing, and ensure they get their eyes tested.”
