Visual impairment from uncorrected refractive-errors can have immediate and long-term consequences in school-aged children, such as lost educational opportunities, lost an economic gain for individuals, families, and societies, and impaired quality of life. Uncorrected refractive-error is recognized as the principal cause of visual impairment in school-aged children as failure to the treatment of refractive-error in children may lead to Amblyopia which turns into the blindness of the children.
