Hi,

My daughter 3 years old, has developed 0.5 power in each eye and cylindrical power of 1.5 D. Is she required to wear glasses? Can i stop the power from increasing without making her wear spectacles

Thanks

 

Answer

Thanks for your Question

 

 

You should know that wearing eyeglasses won't stop the refractive power from changing and usually the refractive power of the eye stabilizes by the age of 18-20 years and wearing eyeglasses prevent the development of amblyopia.

You daughter should always wear eyeglasses and also should have annual follow-up.
