Its Universal Neonatal Eye Examination program is a comprehensive procedure which utilises proven state-of-the-art digital imaging telemedicine technologies. This eye examination is necessary to screen for pathologies and abnormalities (which may be present) in every newborn’s eyes – preferably to be performed after birth. Eye imaging of all newborns should be standard procedure. Global data reveals that the rate of intraocular pathology among newborns tested for can be as high as 2%.
The services offered by BabySight include Newborn Eye Screening and Mother & Baby Eye Screening. Products also include the ‘Infant Vision Stimulation Flashcards’, a set of 25 durable, double-sided, high-contrast flashcards, which assist in infant visual stimulation, including developing a child’s nerves and cognitive perception. Furthermore, these flashcards have been endorsed by ophthalmologists and retinal specialists with paediatric expertise as being safer than using gadgets; while improving concentration skills, enhancing natural curiosity and stimulating neuro-development.
BabySight’s Visual Stimulation Flashcards significantly help to develop a baby’s vision. Step by step, these cards offer visual boosting because a baby, in its first 3 months, can only focus on objects about 8-11 inches away. By using black-and-white images, these Flashcards stimulate babies’ optic nerves, thus stimulating their cognitive development.
Further, these cards train eye muscles and the brain to coordinate and function appropriately. While engaging with contrasting images, diverse textures and patterns, learning and focus are boosted in babies.
BabySight has recently won the BabyTalk Readers’ Choice Awards for the category of Best Newborn Eye Screening Service.
