To your baby, everything is new and exciting. And your baby’s vision is one of the most important links to their new world.
While the eye's greatest physical development occurs during the first year of life, your child's eye development continues throughout childhood. Eye muscles strengthen, and nerve connections multiply. You can help this process by supplying plenty of visual stimulation for your child.
What’s important in this stage of eye development is that your eyes stay healthy - good vision is vital for just about every activity you choose—and you want to keep your 20/20 vision for many years to come.
If you’re like most people in their 20s and 30s, you enjoy excellent vision. You might even be emmetropic – that is, your vision is naturally 20/20, and hasn’t changed since you were a child. Or perhaps your 20/20 vision comes with the help of glasses or contact lenses. Regardless, if you’re doing the right things to help maintain good health, your eyesight can stay at the same level for a decade or more.
You rely on your sight to enjoy life to the fullest, but as you reach your 40s and 50s, you may notice your vision starting to change.
You’ve worked hard; at last there is time to focus on yourself. Time to enjoy friends or grandchildren, read a book or play a round of golf. And enjoy your continued good vision.
