Visual Development & Protection May Newsletter

Did you know newborn infants are legally blind? Or that clear eyesight and depth perception need to be developed with the assistance of adults? A lot goes into healthy eye development and young eyes need proper nutrients, natural light, colors, shapes, and moving things to move this process along. Outdoor exercise, with protection from exposure to the sun and other elements, is the very best way to promote healthy eye development. Eye exams and food also play a vital role in development. For more information on Visual Development and Protection, view CCEI's May newsletter, in recognition of Healthy Vision Month.

  1. It really takes time for a new born to see, actually, some people say that they only see red colors. In fact, what develops faster to them is their hearing. Anyway, thank you for the ideas.

  2. Interesting, but wouldn't you say they have everything except light when they're born? They have nutrients, and how can they see shapes if they can't see?

  3. Karen, they can see some as their vision develops, but have to develop the ability to focus on individual objects and to learn to identify what those objects are. Thanks for reading!

  4. Really interesting, I didn't know that the newborns are ''blind'' How can you discover fast if the child has any problems with the eyesight?

  5. Please consult a professional optometrist if you suspect your child is having issues with their eyesight. If you are the child's caregiver, then notify their parent/guardian at an appropriate time.
