In the eyes of a baby
A baby can see more than we might think. It is fascinating to know that babies, even newly born, have already visual abilities. In fact, their experiences are just like similar to the vision of an adult wherein they are able to distinguish the internal features of the face such as eyes, nose and mouth. By 4 to 5 months of age, they can actually recognize his/her mother’s face from all others in the world. The eyes brain and body of a baby, as we all know, undergo dramatic increase in physical size, and that suggests that parents should preserve the accuracy of their babies’ vision during the first year of life.
