This question came in from Nicole, whose 6 month old, Penny, wears glasses because of congentital cataracts.
I need a little bit of help. The last few days or so, I cannot get Penny to keep her glasses on. I can distract her for a few minutes, but as soon as I turn away, she pulls them off. If she tries to pull them off and I stop her, she tries to rub her eyes through the lenses. I’m getting very frustrated, and leave them off as a result. And I do see her weaker eye wandering because of leaving her glasses off.
With a very active 6-month-old, I just don’t know what to do. I’m going to call her PO tomorrow and see if they can squeak her in for a prescription check to see if it hasn’t shifted majorly again.
Anyone here had a young one who wore glasses just fine, only to all of a sudden start refusing to wear them? Any advice for Nicole?
