Paediatric Opthamology


A child’s eye is still in the growth stage as compared to an adult eye. Other than dreams, there are a lot of biological and physiological changes that are happening within the eyes. The eye-sight of the child has a direct impact on their performance, perception, social activeness, confidence, character building and more. 

No matter what, the eyes of children need immediate attention to minimize impact on their eye-sight at a later stage of their lives.

1. Deep water fishes

Salmon, tuna, and mackerel are great sources of omega-3 fatty acids. They help maintain lubrication in your child’s eyes and prevent dry eye syndrome. Eating them regularly can also help reduce their risk of developing cataracts and macular degeneration later on.

2. Leafy Green Vegetables

Kale, spinach, and collard greens contain high levels of lutein and zeaxanthin. These carotenoids have potent antioxidative properties which help ward off free radicals in your eyes. According to your expert eye doctor, they act as a defense mechanism to prevent macular degeneration and cataract formation as your child grows older.

3. Eggs and Carrots

Eating Vitamin A-rich eggs can help prevent night blindness and dry eyes. Carrots also contain high levels of beta-carotene, which is a precursor of this vitamin. They maintain your child’s ocular structural integrity and promote healthy functioning of their eye components.

4. Berries and Citrus Fruits

We suggest giving your child strawberries and oranges as snacks. These fruits are rich in Vitamin C which can strengthen your kid’s immune system, increasing their resistance to eye infections and other diseases.

5. Nuts

We advise including almonds, pistachios, and walnuts in your child’s diet. These nuts contain significant levels of Vitamin E, which also acts as an antioxidant that helps preserve your kid’s eyesight. Studies also show that eating nuts daily is an effective home remedy.
