Kids with Glasses and Surgery

Jina - posted on 07/09/2015 ( 1 mom has responded )




I am trying to decide if I should have surgery for my little one. She is 2 and a half and I want to try vision therapy first. Does anyone have stories to share about their experience with surgery? I am curious about age and results. It seems like every kid needs two surgeries for it to work. Any comments are welcome! Thanks, Jina

I don't know how bad the vision problem is with your child, so I can't really say if surgery would be a good idea. What do the doctors suggest? Generally you should wait until the child/eyes are done growing before you do something to change the eyes. The surgery could be undone as the child continues to grow, and require more surgeries.
