Eye care in children begins at the time of birth. This will enable us to detect any Congenital defect which if not taken care of, will lead to vision problem in future.
Early intervention is the key for success in pediatric eye problem. Education to parent will play a major role. 
We at Sunayana, emphasize on preschool eye checkup for all children. This helps in detecting the eye problem at an early stage.
If the problem is not solved at this stage, it will have implication on academics too.

Sunayana Eye Hospital offers comprehensive eye checkup for children which includes not only diagnosis & treatment but also creating awareness about eye care for parents.

Interesting point to note:
What a Baby Sees in the First Year
Newborn - One Month
 
has an inborn preference for what is familiar;
pays attention briefly to the human face;
responds to movement;
has acuity of about 20/400,
possesses color vision, with the exception of blue.
 
 
 
 
Two Months
A two-month-old baby...
visually fixes onto a human face, particularly when the face is accompanied by a voice;
watches people at a distance;
is able to alternate his/her gaze between two people, objects or patterns, and show simple visual preference.
Four - Six Months
At this age, a baby...
is fascinated with faces of other babies and his/her own, as seen in a mirror;
recognizes a person on sight and smiles selectively;
shifts from his/her earlier preference for what is familiar to a preference for novelty (except as related to people).
At this time, there is evidence of more cognitive processing and visual recognition memory (i.e., recognizing relevant pattern information amidst change without being overly distracted by detail). Also, a four- to sixth-month-old baby is visually guided in reaching/grasping; and visually inspects and examines a toy held in different orientations/positions and looks for it when it falls from view.
Six - 12 Months
Social referencing is experienced at this age. Between six and 12 months, a baby...
can look in the direction that your eyes are gazing;
may modify his/her approach to, or withdrawal from a novel situation by the positive (or negative) expression on a parent's face;
begins to direct his/her gaze toward familiar people or objects, in response to common words when a parent labels what the baby is looking at;
looks at an object and then at the parent, to indicate wanting access to the object and/or a comment from the parent;
shows a toy to a parent in a manner of sharing wonder.
