If you have kids or friends who have kids, or if you have friends who are blind or visually impaired, the chances are you have seen some kind of blind or vision impairment at some point.
But they are not always visible to you, so you can get a better idea of how you might be affected.
This article takes a look at the common causes of blinds or vision issues in children.
If you’re worried about someone in your family getting sick, you should always get the medical information and get the proper treatment for your family members, said Nancy Cappuccio, MD, professor of family medicine at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
If the person has a history of hearing loss, you can be very concerned, but also, they may be able to use their vision to make an educated decision about when and how to seek medical care, Cappucci said.
You can also check with the pediatrician, which can also provide information about where and when to see a doctor.
If your child has a vision problem, there are a few things you can do to help.
You should check with your child’s doctor to see if they have vision problems, she said.
If you suspect there is a problem with vision or hearing, the best thing to do is get the right tests done, Capps said.
They can also see if the person is using vision aids or hearing aids.
If that’s the case, get them tested for any eye or hearing problems.
This is especially important if the child has trouble seeing, hearing or seeing colors.
If a child does have problems seeing, he or she might have an eye or ear infection.
It’s best to take that child to the pediatricians office to see the pediatric ophthalmologist or a specialist, Cops said.
If there’s no obvious signs of an eye infection, the next thing to look for is a mild or moderate eye infection.
If the eye infection is not severe, it can be treated.
If it is, you may need to see your eye specialist.
If an eye problem does develop, you might need surgery, Colds said.
You can also contact your local emergency medical services office.
If they are aware of any children with a vision or vision issue, they should contact the child’s pediatrician and/or get the appropriate tests done.
If there is no immediate risk to the child, you could contact your pediatrician to see how you can help.
If a person is experiencing difficulty getting dressed, having trouble walking, or finding the appropriate balance, the last thing to consider is whether there’s a risk to them, Coppuccio said.
There are ways to help children with these types of vision issues, such as getting them into a wheelchair, walking on their own or getting their parents to take them to the doctor, she added.
For children who are visually impaired or blind, they might also want to talk to their parents about the best time to see their doctor and whether there are ways for them to get an eye exam, Calls said.
And if you think your child might have a problem, you also need to talk with your pediatricians to make sure it’s not related to vision problems.
The best time for an eye test is before a birthday, Coper said.
It could also be as early as the age of four, Coots said.
Children with vision problems are at greater risk of getting sick and dying from other causes.
This may include asthma, a lung disease or some other medical condition, said Dr. Sarah M. Fuchs, PhD, assistant professor of pediatrics at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
And because they have lower vision, they have less time to rest, sleep, eat and get proper nutrition, which increases the risk of a serious illness or death, Fuchs said.
