My son is six and a half year old. Should I feed him vitamin A as a precautionary measure so that his eye sight gets support and his eyes might not get weak in future. Right now he is not having any specs means his eyes are well. But around 1 week ago he suddenly started blinking his eyes more after getting stressed after his studies or watching TV. After 2- 3 days his blinking became normal. Today he was again blinking more, may be because he slept less at night. So what should I do. Please help.
