Children are an important section of our society and are our future citizens. In India, 41% of children (under 18 years) are estimated to need visual correction but are not corrected. 30% of India’s blind lose their sight before the age of 20 years and many of them are under five when they become blind, the importance of early detection and treatment of ocular diseases and visual impairment in young children is obvious. Vision problems affect one in 20 preschoolers and one in four school age children.
During a child’s first 12 years, 80% of all learning is visual . And yet most children have not had a comprehensive eye exam prior to starting school. Majority of students identified as problem learners have undetected vision problems.A comprehensive school Eye health program has 3 major components.
