Customer Question
Hi advice please. My son...
Hi advice please. My son suffered with a lazy eye and was treated with patching for several years and had great success. However, in the last 6 months his lazy eye has 'returned' and he now has blurred vision in one eye. Following a hospital referral, the consultant has confirmed that our optician has been over prescribing his lenses and this is the cause. He has advised that by correcting the prescription we should see the vision return. My son is 12 years old and the two prescriptions are as follow. Do you think this is the likely cause:
1. (Feb 2017)
Right sph +7, cyl -1.5, Axis 15
Left sph +7, cyl -2.5, Axis 170
2. (Sept 2017)
Right sph +5, cyl -1.5, Axis 15
Left sph +5.5, cyl -2.25, Axis 155
Many thanks

Hello. My name is ***** ***** and I just read through your question.

For many patients, corrective lenses is the cure. In fact, there are some patients who have been cured this way without ever having used the patch. for this reason, I also believe that the wrong prescription is the cause here and that by correcting them, he will be cured.
