The two most common vision issues in young kids are: A crossed or wandering eye and uneven focus, where one eye is more farsighted than the other.
The first condition may be referred to as "lazy eye" or "wandering eye". Often kids may not say anything about these issues but if either condition goes untreated, the child's stronger eye can slowly become the dominant eye. The brain will ignore images coming from the weaker eye and stop developing the nerve connections leading to it. Eventually, vision loss in the weaker eye will be permanent.
A vision screening, early detection and the proper treatment can reverse these conditions!
