There is no doubt that when we are a father or mother, we become better people and the great guardians of our little ones. We want and want the best for our baby, and that is why we surround him with care so that he grows up in the healthiest way possible.
We worry if our little one eats and sleeps well, grows properly, if he reacts to stimulations, but few are concerned with taking care of the eyes, one of the most sensitive organs of the baby.
The baby's eyes are a very important part that, due to its sensitivity, requires special care. In the first months of life, babies produce more mucus than adults, both in the nose and in the eyes.
For this reason, it is very common for them to present some conjunctivitis, or even to present obstructed tear ducts that are manifested by the constant presence of tears and legañas that cannot flow naturally through the drainage ducts that exist between the eye and the nose. This discomfort can disappear spontaneously, or with some medical treatment.
The hygiene of the baby's eyes is essential for the prevention of problems such as blepharitis, an inflammation of the baby's eyelids. You can clean the baby's eyelids and eyelashes with sterile wipes and thus eliminate any type of bacteria, and in the event that you notice that a lot of blemishes are formed, you should wash the baby's eyes with physiological saline to rid them of blemished residues.
Apart from cleaning and hygiene of the baby's eyes, it is also important, in its first years of life, that we take a look and observe how the baby reacts to visual stimuli. The ONCE (National Organization of the Blind of Spain) reports that every minute there is a case of childhood blindness in the world. The institution insists that prevention is the key to maintaining sight. Many vision problems can go unnoticed.
According to the latest data, between 5 and 10 percent of preschool-age children, and about 25 percent of school-age children, have vision problems such as myopia, amblyopia or "lazy eye". strabismus or "squint", hyperopia, and others. That is why it is important that we are attentive to any changes that our little one presents in this regard.
I remember that I was diagnosed with myopia when I was 10 years old, when I went from sitting in the last row of the class to going to the first, because I could not see what the teacher put on the board. Facts like this can be signs that something is wrong with your little one's eyesight.
