In early childhood, some infants with abnormal eye signs or high-risk disease factors were required to have frequent health check-ups. It is demonstrated by the epidemiological survey that the incidence and cure rate of low vision in children have closely to do with the early detection. It is a rational and common way to have a check-up by professional ophthalmologist at the age of one.
