Some newborns experience crossed eyes or misaligned eyeballs in the first few months of life. This happens because the muscles that control the child’s eyes are still weak. This misaligned eye condition is known as strabismus. If this condition lasts until the child is 3 months old, it could lead to lazy eye or amblyopia. Amblyopia is more difficult to cure. Preferably, before amblyopia occurs, parents help stimulate the child’s eye ability to develop properly. One of the stimuli that can train the child’s eye muscles to move in harmony and focus on a visible object is to train it to follow an object. In preverbal children case needs particular stimuli because they can’t deliver what they see in a word. The majority of parents who lives in Serpong area until now have not realized the importance of stimulating the child’s eye to prevent amblyopia. Through this research, it is hoped that it can invite the Mother and Child Hospital in Serpong to start taking an action in the hospital environment that can stimulate the child’s eyes as well as socializing parents to start realizing the importance of stimulating the child’s eyes. It is also hoped that the hospital can become a medium for parents to get information about the importance of this visual stimulus.
