MORE than 11,000 children have had their eyes screened in a programme to prevent sight loss.

Pre-schoolers in the Greater Glasgow and Clyde area are being tested for problems such as Amblyopia, or “lazy eye”. The condition is caused either by a squint or differences in the focussing power of each eye and, if left untreated, can lead to vision problems.
