(ORDO NEWS) — If you think that immediately after birth, the child sees everything the same way as you, then you are greatly mistaken.
Adults do not even assume that the formation of normal vision in a baby takes a whole year of life. Here’s how it goes by month
When a human cub is born, it takes a long time for it to become independent. In many ways, our children are more helpless than the young of other animals.
But, if, for example, kittens are born blind, then human children can see from birth. True, they are still far from the sight of an adult.
How babies see the world
In the first days after birth, children see the world in black and white. They can distinguish light from darkness and see a moving object. After a few weeks, the baby will be able to see dark and light areas in front of him.
After 1-2 months, the baby’s vision is still blurry, and the maximum distance at which they can see something is about 30 centimeters.
The child cannot see much further than this distance. At a few weeks old, they can see red, orange, yellow, and green.
At the age of 3-4 months, the child’s vision becomes better and sharper. They can see almost all colors and have a preference for certain shades.
The child can switch attention from object to object without turning his head. 2 eyes work “together”, as in an adult. The child can see at a distance of several meters.
At the age of 5 months, vision becomes even clearer. The kid can determine at what distance this or that object is from him.
It can observe moving objects or animals. He also has better hand-eye coordination – he can quickly grab something in his field of vision.
By 7-9 months, the baby’s vision is clear enough to see things on the other side of the room. A toddler may like toys with moving parts and colorful pictures in books.
Already by about 10-12 months, the child’s vision is completely formed, and by the end of the first year, they already see the world as clearly as their parents.
