It is extremely important for or developing two babies. Through which as children I discover the world to the Lord and I will learn to make all kinds of years.

Anyone who is suspended is houver, or the baby must be immediately referred to an ophthalmologist.
Therefore, before you can see the baby, any condition that affects the baby’s vision can be identified with the aps logo or the birth. Isso because, on this day, there is a test do reflexo vermelho (TRV), also called test olhinho do, which must be done by pediatrician nas first 72 hours of life of child – or before discharge of maternity.
Or what or test do reflexo vermelho?
Totally painless , this test is performed with a chamado ophthalmoscopic device, which emits a quantity of light that reflects the retina and leaves through the pupil. This light orange-avermelhada , reflected to the normal retina, and means that the main internal structures of the eye (cornea, anterior chamber, ris, pupil, lens, vitreous humor and retina) This is transparent, allowing the retina to be reached in a normal way.
There are three interpretations for this test: present, absent or doubtful . Or reflection is absent vermelho, or white (with leukocoria), when there is an abnormality that does not prevent the light from checking the retina and being reflected. When absent or doubtful, requested an ophthalmologist’s assessment to perform a more complete examination, such as the use of colrios to dilate the pupil.
Assim, or TRV considered um triagem test , which serves to detect doenas such as congenital cataract, congenital glaucoma, retinoblastoma (which is an ocular tumor), premature retinopathy, intraocular inflammation and deceleration of retina. As an early diagnosis of major desserts, it is possible to follow an appropriate treatment in time to avoid or minimize visual impairment – and, in the case of retinoblastoma, decrease or risk of life of the baby.
OR TRV must be repeated by pediatrician during childcare consultations , hair less three times a year, during the first 3 years of life.
