I have an 8 year old child.
We went recently , 17, Aug, 2013 to an optometrist
. She stated that child has ä bit of astigmatism in left eye and that it sees worse" than right eye.
Ended with prescription +2 left eye(os) and + 1 right eye (od). DR advised patching for 2 hrs a day/2 months.
Worth mentioning, the child was very anxious on her exam (this made me want another opinion), and the light was dimmed in exam room.
Went today to get a second opinion from another optometrist, 20 Aug, 2013, and child was not anxious this time.
Dr did not rush us through. Took time, asked child qns and child was honest when she could not see. Dr gave us a prescription (lazier eye, astigmatism)
os +1.50 cyl -1.25 axis 022.
I can see there is a difference in prescriptions.
No patching was suggested at this time.
I am lost and would like to ask if it is a big difference in prescription?
i am concerned about the first prescription.
Please explain. thank you.
