It is important that from the first month of life they undergo a complete ophthalmological examination. There are infections that are often not detected during pregnancy such as Toxoplasmosis, Rubella, Cytomegalovirus, Herpes, among others that can cause early damage to the child's eyes. If not treated in time, they can lead to irreparable subnormal vision.
