Depending upon the child, they may need to have lenses inserted into goggles to allow the glasses to stay in place.
These glasses are often needed to prevent eyes becoming “crossed” or “wall eyed”.
If you child is found to need glasses, confirm the diagnosis and treatment by having her visit a Pediatric Ophthalmologist if you have doubts about the first eye doctors opinion. But, don’t ignore the advice lest your child develops a lifelong reduction of vision.
