Hello, I noticed my son's left eye would cross sometimes while looking at some things or when he was tired, so after an appointment with the pediatrician she recommended taking him to have his eyes checked out. After the appointment yesterday, we were told that my almost 3 year old was farsighted, with it being worse in his left eye. She gave us a prescription for glasses, and made us another appointment for next month because she wants to carefully watch his left eye for the possibility of patching. His father and I have never had glasses, this is a totally new experience for us. I feel like it's a nightmare waiting to happen. I can't see him wanting to wear them, whether flex frame or not.
His prescription is for Right + Left: Spherical: +375 Cylindrical: +1.00
I don't have much of an understanding for what that means :)
If anyone has any tips! Like I said, my son is just turning 3 so I'm trying to figure this all out! Thanks!
