Healthier Vision Begins Early
When babies are as young as 1 month old, they begin to watch their parents’ faces as they talk. By three months, their little eyes start to focus and recognize the differences between colours.
By 18 months old, most children’s hand-eye coordination develops enough for them to build small structures with blocks and draw shapes with crayons. When they’re 2 or 3 years old, kids are usually coordinated enough to perform more advanced tasks, like using scissors.
It’s vital that these visual milestones develop on time. Having age-appropriate visual skills ensures that kids are prepared for school and set up for success in the future.
