Congenital-onset cataracts, congenital eye pressure or disorders in the retina may cause permanent vision loss within 2-3 months.
Examinations between the ages of 6 months and 1 years are especially important for the detection and treatment of strabismus. Shifts that continue after 6 months require treatment.
In the later period, even if there are no complaints, examinations are important at the age of 3-4 and in the preschool period.
