Babies do not come into this world with fully formed eyesight. They gradually learn to see over time as their brains continue to develop in the first two years of life. Pathways between their eyes and brain form as they grow and develop. Both eyes need to develop properly for the process to proceed smoothly. In case of any interference of vision, such as blurry vision or need for eyeglasses, there will be no stimulation of the pathways to the brain.
Glaucoma is a disease that affects the optic nerve. It has no cure and can cause blindness if left untreated. When the condition is detected early, eye doctors can manage the condition with a host of different treatment options, including eye drops, oral medications, and even surgery.
