PBA advises parents to watch for these warning signs. The child … · Rubs eyes a lot · Closes or covers one eye · Tilts head or thrusts head forward · Has trouble reading or doing other close-up work, or holds objects close to eyes to see · Blinks more than usual or seems cranky when doing close-up work · Things are blurry or hard to see · Squints eyes or frowns
The child may also say … · ‘My eyes are itchy,’ ‘My eyes are burning,’ or ‘My eyes feel scratchy’ · ‘I can’t see that well’ · After doing close-up work, ‘I feel dizzy,’ ‘I have a headache,’ or ‘I feel sick/nauseous’ · ‘Everything looks blurry’ or ‘I see double’
