Has anyone else been frustrated with the whole patching thing? My daughter had the surgery at age 4 and has been wearing glasses since. She is now 6 and her opthamologist wants her to wear a patch 4 hours a day... we haven't been able to make this a consistent routine, mainly because I work full-time and on weekdays, we are only home for 2 hours in the evening before her bedtime. Should she wear the patch at school or at her after-school activities? Would the kids make fun of her? Also, she always manages to slide the patch over a bit so she can see out of that eye... I'm assuming this defeats the whole purpose!
