I am devastated!! When my daughter was 2 I noticed when she was looking at something close up her left eye would slightly turn in only occasionally. No one else noticed it but I took her to docs about this who referred me to the hospital for a check up. They prescribed her glasses which I found quite upsetting to begin with and was quite shocked as well as it wasn't that noticeable and no one had noticed it apart from myself not even my husband just my mum. However I took their advice and been doing what they say. Every few months we would have another check up and her glasses would get stronger every time. I had been back a few times as I noticed when she took her glasses of for baths or bed her eyes would cross which they never did before and they would explain this is where she was getting use to the glasses so this would happen. Still it was upsetting seeing my daughters eyes look like this when it was just a slight turn in occasionally to start with and no one would notice but now everyone could see. Her glasses where made stronger and stronger to try and straighten them and one of the eyes needed a slight prescription for sight but they said her eye sight was actually really good. Now her eyes cross with the glasses on and without them on. I just don't know what to do about this I fee sick with worry!!! Please help

Hi thank you for your message. she is mainly seen by an optometrist and her previous diagnosis is left alternating accommodative estropia with questionable convergence excess element. What's your opinion of taking her somewhere else for a second opinion as her eyes are now so much worse? They told me bifocals is the next route they will probably go down!
