Preventive care and eye diseases in children
Children as patients at the Augencenter Wollishofen: With examination methods suitable for children, we can detect a concrete suspicion of a visual disorder at an early stage and treat it promisingly. Early detection is very important.
Early detection of visual disorders in children and adolescents
In children, early detection of eye diseases is extremely important in order to prevent lifelong visual impairment with the right therapy. Routine eye examinations of newborns and children are therefore recommended. As early as 18 months of age, any vision problems can be detected in order to identify defects such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism (astigmatism, astigmatism) and treat them at an early stage.
