I’m re-posting this comment from Anna who is looking for anyone with ideas or experiences with their child getting clumsy after getting their glasses. -Ann Z
My 23 month old son, Frank, was diagnosed with Strabismus. Right before Thanksgiving we noticed his left eye turning in. We took him to the doctor immediately because there is a family history of Strabismus.
The opthamoligist said his eye sight is +3.50 in both eyes. He said patch and get glasses. Thankfully Frank has never been bothered by the patch and has never pulled. We ordered his glasses and they finally came in last week. He has been good wearing them so far, but the past 2 days he has become extremely clumsy. Yesterday he fell and scratched his face all up and scratched one lense very bad. Thankfully we got insurance on the glasses and they will replace the lens for free. Then this morning the babysitter calls me at work and says that he fell again and his glasses are completely bent and the lens fell out. Not only that, but the nose piece went into the corner of his eye and he has a cut.
This has made me a little stressed out since he has suddenly become so clumsy. Do you have any suggestions on what I can do to help him out and not be so clumsy?
