Hello,

It is common for children to complain of blurry vision because they are wanting glasses. Often times, it is because others at school have glasses as well. There are ways to check to see if your daughter needs a glasses prescription or not.

You may consider a visit to another optometrist for a second opinion if your doubt the first exam, but children complaining of blurry vision wanting glasses is a consideration in this case.

Please remember to press the ACCEPT if my answer was helpful.
