I just got this email from Tami, who is looking for stories and pictures of kids with high + prescriptions to help her daughter who is unhappy about getting glasses and worried how they’ll look on her. As an aside, any doctors reading this should take this as a lesson in being careful in what you say to kids about getting glasses. I’m sure the doctor thought it would help.
my daughter who is 4 yrs old was diagnosed with acommodative esotropia today with a very high prescription 0f +6.5 and +7.5. Do you have any tips or pictures of kids in that high of a script for far sightedness? She is very sad that she has to wear them and the doctor made the mistake of telling me her eyes would look larger in the glasses, Will they really be that thick? If you have any advice of pictures of kids in the similar presciption maybe it would help.
