What does your child say?

“Everything is blurry”, “I’m seeing double”

“Everything is blurry”, “I’m seeing double”

Blurred vision mainly evokes a refractive disorder (need for glasses): myopia causes blurred vision at a distance, hyperopia especially near and astigmatism often both far and near.

A refractive disorder can be accompanied by a feeling of visual fatigue, having “itchy” eyes and/or headaches at the end of the day.

The presence of double vision is a symptom that should not be overlooked, since it indicates either a problem of refraction, or a loss of parallelism of the eyes. It is therefore important to determine the cause so that it can be treated. We recommend that you make an appointment for your child with an ophthalmologist.
