Reading glasses





My daughter spent months in vision therapy for the condition that results in lazy eye when she was 10. She is 18 now and is exhibiting the same symptoms that she had before. We don't remember the therapy exercises that she had to perform.

we cannot get an appointment to see an optometrist due to the COVID-19 crisis. She is currently taking online classes because her school campus has closed, so she is reading and using computers more than usual. Is there anything that she can do until we can have her seen?

Thank you.




Thanks for your Question

Can you explain on the comment below what symptoms she is having now. Lazy eye can't occur at 18 years old.

Thank you so much for the response.

She said she has a general headache, dull ache in “back” of right eye, and some trouble focusing on print.

These are symptoms of uncorrected refractive errors such as farsightedness or nearsightedness. She might need to wear prescription eyeglass and to do that she has to visit an optometrist.

Meanwhile she has to spend less time on mobile, computer screen and even reading book to reduce headache and eye strain.
