Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Wow. That is very, very hyperopic.
It is very unlikely that your daughters refractive error will change enough as she grow older to allow her to have lasik surgery. Hard contact lenses, however are a good choice.
As you may already know, it is important for your daughter to be examined by an ophthalmologist at least yearly. With such a farsighted eye she may be at risk for angle closure glaucoma as well as other ophthalmological complications.
If you are not sure of the refraction (and refracting a child that young and that hyperopic takes extra effort) I'd take her to a pediatric ophthalmologist for a second opinion.
Does this make sense to you?
And, now, the obligatory word from our sponsors: :o)
