When to seek medical advice
Seek prompt medical care if your child has an eye injury or experiences sudden vision changes, especially if accompanied by:
- Severe eye pain or irritation
- Swelling or redness in or around the eyes
- Discharge of blood or pus from the eyes
- Unequal pupil sizes
- Problems with eye movement
See a specialist in vision problems (optometrist or ophthalmologist) if your child experiences any vision problems that impair his or her ability to read or write comfortably or participate in everyday activities.
