I WANT TO CONSULT WITH A BEST EYE DOCTOR FOR MY 2 YRS 4 MONTHS OLD SON
ACTUALLY MY SON RESIDE IN HIS MATERNAL UNCLE'S HOME FROM HIS BIRTH.I VISITED TO HIM WEEKLY OR BETWEEN 2 WEEKS.THIS TIME DUE TO SOME PHYSICAL AND WORK PRESSURE CONDITION I UNABLE TO MET WITH HIM DURING 4 MONTHS.AFTER 4 MONTHS WHEN I MET WITH HIM, I SAW HIM SLIGHT SQUINT IN HIS ONE EYE.I SUDDENLY BRING HIM TO MY HOME AND APPOINT WITH A EYE SPECIALIST IN NEARBY BEST EYE SPECIALIST.ABOUT THE EYE SPECIALIST MY PARENTS BOTH CATARACT OPERATION DONE BY HIM AND I PERSONALLY ALWAYS VISIT TO HIM FOR ANY EYE PROBLEM.HE ADVICE US TO USE A EYE OINTMENT AND AFTER
USING THE OINTMENT FOR 2 DAYS 2 TIMES A DAY HE INSTRUCT US TO BRING MY SON FOR A COMPUTER EYE TEST. ACCORDING TO HIS CONCERN, SQUINT PROBLEM APPEAR SOMETIMES FROM BIRTH, SOMETIMES AFTER 2 AND HALF/3 YRS .FIRST HE SUGGEST TO USE THE OINTMENT TO TAKE HIS POWER, IF HE HAS REALLY POWER, IF THERE IS POWER THAN AFTER GIVING POWER HE CAN BE OUT OF SQUINT PROBLEM, OTHERWISE HE WILL GIVE SOME EYE EXERCISE, IF TILL NOT REMOVED THE SQUINT PROBLEM THAN HE WILL GO FOR A SURGERY.
WE VISITED TO THE DOCTOR AFTER GIVING THE EYE OINTMENT.MY SON CHECKED BY COMPUTER POWER AND WHEN WE ARRIVED TO DOCTOR FOR A FINAL EYE TEST, DOCTOR UNABLE TO TAKE THE EYE POWER , BECAUSE OF HIS CRYING. DOCTOR SUGGEST US TO BRING HIM AFTER 21 DAYS.
NOW THE MEMEBERS OF HIS MATERNAL UNCLE HOUSE NOT AGREED TO VISIT HIM TO THE DOCTOR BECAUSE ACCORDING TO THEIR OPINION CHILD EYE WILL GOT BAD IF SPECTACLES WILL GIVEN TO HIM.
NOW MY QUESTION IS IF MY SON NOT APPEAR TO DOCTOR OR NOT USE SPECTACLES THEN IS THERE WILL BE ANY PROBLEM IN FUTURE.
Thanks for your Question
Examination of squint in child should include dilating fundus examination followed by computer eye examination with dilated pupil. Any power appears in the computer eye exam should be fully corrected with eyeglasses.
You should visit an pediatric ophthalmologist who are specialized in child's eye conditions.
Don't be late to visit this doctor. the sooner the better.
