    What causes blurred vision in a child?

Posted on Wed, 5 Jul 2017 in Vision and Eye Disorders
Question: Hi, We shifted from XXXXXXX to XXXXXXX this XXXXXXX From past 1 month my son has got red eyes and now starting to have blurred vision. We saw a doc earlier, he prescribed some drops and cream, drops were steroids, so don;t want to continue as he prescribed for 2 months???
So, I need another advice as he is just 6 yrs old, and I can't settle with this treatment

Brief Answer:
Allergic conjunctivitis

Detailed Answer:
My dear,
Thanks for sending your query to us.
This is more likely to be allergy.Though steroids are supposed to give you a lot of relief,their long term exposure is not recommended and they should be kept in reserve for acute conditions and for short duration.
We have many non steroid drops like oloptidine,marketed as Oopat eye drop or oli drops,to be put in twice a day and Be Pos eye drop by lupin ,thrice day.Refresh tears drops thrice a day can also be used for long term.
Protection from dust and frequent washing with plain water also helps.
Continue with these and get back to me in case of any further query in this regard.
