Pediatric Eye Clinic
Did you know that half of children during the first year have astigmatism? This refractive defect, which prevents light from refracting well and images from focusing on the retina, but from in front or behind, causes blurred vision.
However, thanks to the process of emmetropization or eye growth, its diameter and radius of curvature increase, so the defect in children is corrected in the first two years of life. Likewise, astigmatism less than 1 diopter is considered normal in children under two years of age, as are half-diopter values from 3 years of age (physiological astigmatism), since it occurs in 95% of eyes.
