Hi,

My 2 year 10 months old kid have alternative intermittent esotropia. Her vision is +7.0 in right eye and +5.5. in left eye.The doctor has prescribed +5.0 and +3.5 glasses.

Can she use those glasses at this age,kindly suggest me whether she is going under right treatment.

Thanks

Answer

Thanks for your Question

This is the only way right now. Your kid has to wear the glasses all the day. This is very important. The esotropia comes from high refractive power that is not corrected.

Followup regularly with your eye doctor because the power might change with time.
