Seeing needs to be learned
Because eyes are the most important sensory organ of humans. And yet 1 in 5 children suffer from vision disorders, which can lead to amblyopia without early detection.1
But just as with running or speaking, children also have to learn to see with both eyes (binocular vision) in the first years of life.
Parents witness the progress as their baby learns to move or to speak the first words every day. How and what your child sees, remains unknown.

Vision Screening played a life-saving role for my daughter. I think that every school and every pediatrician’s office should have one.
We as parents can only recommend vision screening. It doesn't hurt the child, on the contrary, our children even had fun doing it. In addition, the measurement is quickly over and the results are clear.
I would never have thought, that a vision screening is conducted so fast and easy.
By discovering the corneal curvature at an early stage, Lennox's vision can now develop optimally, thus ensuring that he can learn well in the future.
What can I do?
Talk to your doctor. He will provide individual advice and will conduct a vision screening in your child.
