Is it important to check visual acuity in children?

When examining a child’s eyesight, visual acuity entails measuring the smallest size of an object that can be seen with each eye.

If visual acuity in one of the eyes is less than normal, it may be due to a lazy or amblyopic eye. In this case, early detection is very important for the future development of the eye.
