Children’s vision is special in that it develops very quickly during the first 6-12 months of age, then becomes more refined during the toddler years. This process of refinement of one’s vision depends on continual feedback from visual input from the child’s environment and the processing of that stimulation in the brain. It is also supported by the continued enhancement of eye muscle movements and eye coordination. The brain becomes more “hard wired” during these early years. This process provides the potential for either “normal vision” to be achieved or if there is inadequate stimulation due to insufficient feedback between the eye and brain (due to uncorrected refractive error, media blur or eye coordination problems) then “amblyopia” or a “lazy eye” may develop. While it is possible to improve amblyopia with a variety of treatment options, it is best to prevent it from developing in the first place by providing the best vision possible during the early stages of life.
