Melody recently posted this question to the Little Four Eyes facebook group, and I wanted to post it here, too to see if anyone has run into this or has any thoughts or advice for Melody. –Ann Z
Has anybody ever had an issue with their child being terrified to walk after getting glasses? My 2 year old was born premature and had surgery for ROP stage 3 with plus disease. The eye Dr. said the eyes still looked good from the surgery but that my son is severely nearsighted.
The thing is, Nick got around just fine …and rarely fell or bumped into things, but now that he’s wearing his glasses is terrified to walk on the floor….Wood, cement, carpet…it doesn’t matter the texture, he puts his hands down and crouch/creeps around, then gives up and sits and scoots…..Any similar experiences? Thank you!
