Im­por­tan­te par­ti­re con il pie­de giu­sto per in­ter­cet­ta­re da su­bi­to even­tua­li pro­ble­mi. Ab­bia­mo chie­sto alla dot­to­res­sa Ele­na Pioz­zi, pri­ma­rio U.O. Ocu­li­sti­ca Pe­dia­tri­ca Ospe­da­le Ni­guar­da Ca’ Gran­da di Mi­la­no qual­che con­si­glio per pre­ve­ni­re i di­stur­bi alla vi­sta da pic­co­li. Quan­do la pri­ma vi­si­ta dall’ocu­li­sta? Una vi­si­ta en­tro il pri­mo an­no di età per esclu­de­re pro­ble­mi im­por­tan­ti, dà già un buon qua­dro. I se­gna­li a cui pre­sta­re at­ten­zio­ne? Fa­sti­dio (per­si­sten­te) alla lu­ce, man­can­za di ag­gan­cio vi­si­vo, il bam­bi­no che non sor­ri­de alla mam­ma, oc­chia­te stra­bi­che ri­pe­tu­te, la­cri­ma­zio­ne co­stan­te. Scos­se e mo­vi­men­ti in­vo­lon­ta­ri, ov­ve­ro il co­sid­det­to ‘occhio bal­le­ri­no’. Ogni quan­to tempo i con­trol­li? Nel bam­bi­no sa­no si può pro­ce­de­re con un ul­te­rio­re con­trol­lo a 3/4 an­ni d’età. A co­sa pre­sta­re at­ten­zio­ne nel­la scel­ta del­la mon­ta­tu­ra? So­no da pri­vi­le­gia­re mon­ta­tu­re leg­ge­re, di cel­lu­loi­de, atos­si­che, in gom­ma e con asti­na drit­ta per ag­gan­cia­re l’ela­sti­co nei pic­co­lis­si­mi. De­vo­no es­se­re ben cen­tra­te e con un buon ap­pog­gio sul na­so. Il pon­te non de­ve cor­ri­spon­de­re alla ra­di­ce del na­so, ma de­ve es­se­re un po’ più bas­so. by Laura San­tam­bro­gio Watch the eyes It’s im­por­tant to start out on the right foot to im­me­dia­te­ly deal wi­th any pro­blems.We spo­ke wi­th Dr. Ele­na Pioz­zi, Head Phy­si­cian of the Pe­dia­tric Oph­thal­mo­lo­gy De­part­ment of Ni­guar­da Ca’ Gran­da Ho­spi­tal in Mi­lan, for so­me ad­vi­ce on pre­ven­ting eye pro­blems in chil­dren. When should a child ha­ve his fir­st eye exam? A fir­st exam be­fo­re the child is one years old to ex­clu­de ma­jor pro­blems al­rea­dy gi­ves a good idea of the si­tua­tion. What si­gns should we pay at­ten­tion to? Per­si­stent di­scom­fort in bright light, the lack of vi­sual con­tact, a child who does not smi­le at his mo­ther, re­pea­ted cros­sed eyes, con­stant tea­ring. In­vo­lun­ta­ry mo­ve­men­ts or tre­mors, so-cal­led ‘dan­cing eye.’ How of­ten should a child ha­ve his eyes chec­ked? In a heal­thy child, another eye exam at 3 or 4 years old. What should you look for when choo­sing fra­mes? You should pre­fer light, non-to­xic cel­lu­loid fra­mes or non-to­xic rub­ber fra­mes wi­th a straight tem­ple for at­ta­ching the ela­stic band in ba­bies. The fra­mes mu­st be cen­te­red and sit cor­rec­tly on the no­se. The brid­ge mu­st not be po­si­tio­ned at the root of the no­se, but slightly lo­wer.
