Everyone has a vision of what children’s eye problems look like: Squinting, sitting too close to the television, rubbing their eyes. Though those can be symptoms of vision issues, sometimes there are no signs your child isn’t seeing well. Here’s what to watch out for and what to do about it.

How does a child’s vision develop?

In the first few months of life, infants can only see clearly objects that are 8 to 10 inches from their face. It isn’t until 12 to 16 weeks that their eyesight begins improving, and they start seeing things more clearly and further away.
Over the next year, kids then develop depth perception, eye-body coordination, eye-hand coordination, and the ability to judge distances. It’s rare for children to have vision problems at this age.
