They rub their eyes a lot

Frequent rubbing of the eyes may indicate discomfort or significant visual strain, which may for example be related to blurred vision resulting from uncorrected refractive disorder.

Rubbing of the eyes can also be caused by local eye irritation, such as dryness, local inflammation, or an allergic reaction. We recommend that you make an appointment for your child with an ophthalmologist.
