Vision Direct Baby Sight App is a new interactive tool designed by an optician to help parents understand how a baby’s eyesight develops over the first year.
If you were ever curious to know how your baby sees the world, you can now see things through your baby’s eyes with the tool here: http://www.visiondirect.co.uk/baby-sight-tool.
You can quickly shift from a newborn’s first view to the fully developed vision of a 12 month old child. You can input your child’s age and get an idea for your baby’s field of vision, depth perception and colour awareness.
A newborn’s vision
A newborn sees shapes, light and movement, but only in shades of grey.
A six month old baby can move her eyes quickly to follow moving objects and is beginning to understand object permanence.
At 10 months old, a baby’s eyes will be the colour they’ll stay when she’s grown up; give or take a shade or two.
Help your baby’s vision develop!
Another great feature of this app is it provides tips to help facilitate your baby’s vision development under each month. For example, at seven to eight months playing games like peekaboo is a great way to help your baby improve her understanding of object permanence, that items still exist even when she can no longer see them.
