Safeguarding your child’s window to the world.
Undiagnosed eye problems among children usually go unnoticed until they are of schooling age. Such problems can impede a child’s academic learning as most new information is presented and processed visually. Children with undiagnosed eye problems can even be mistaken for having learning disabilities.
Early detection and appropriate preventive measures are not only essential to students’ academic achievement but also their overall quality of life. This is especially true in Singapore, which is said to be the myopia (short-sightedness) capital of the world. At least five million people in Singapore are likely to be myopic by 2050, according to a joint study by the Singapore National Eye Centre, the Singapore Eye Research Institute and the National University of Singapore. Myopia also worsens with age.7
