Hi, I wonder if any one could help me- y daughter is 2 and a half and since about 15 months she developed a slight squint or lazy eye when she became tired (only for a few seconds) then she would rub her eyes and her eyes would usually straighten back up.
Recently when she is I her iPad holding it close up she started blinking in one eye snd crying asking for a tissue (as if something is either in it or is blury and bothering her)
Anyway, we went back to the options and this time they said her vision is good slightly long sighted but normal for her age. They wrote her a prescription for +1 glasses based on her symptoms (lazy eye when tired) and complaing of needing a tissue to wipe eye)
When I asked the optition what will the glasses help with, she said it was to take the strain off the weaker eye so she can see better, I said ok but I was a bit concerned as I always thought that with a lazy eye you are supposed to patch the good eye to make the lazy eye work harder.??
Now I'm freaking out because I went home and googled lazy eye / squints and all the prognosis is to wear a patch in good eye and NOT the opposite which is what the optition suggests we do.
I'm really confused... can anyone please advise??
Thanks in advance
