I would make an appointment with a ped opthomologist (sp?) it could be that she has an eye muscle problem that needs strengthening. Speaking from experience, it's better to be checked out sooner than later and glasses might not be the fix. A lot of optometrists just want to hand over glasses to put a bandaid on the problem.

Honestly if shes seeing 20/20 20/25 I don't see why they are correcting her vision. I've have horrible vision and have had glasses since I was a kid. It doesnt make sense to correct perfect vision to strengthen one eye. She could use an eye patch on the stronger eye to make the other eye work harder.

I'm mobile.... sorry for the typos!

Re: Help, I am so confused! **Kids Glasses**

I don't understand why they did glasses at all. Not if she is truly seeing at those levels.

Have you asked her why she watches movies that way?

It sounds to me like she needs to see an ophthalmologist instead of an optometrist.

Re: Help, I am so confused! **Kids Glasses**

I have 3 children in glasses ranging in age from 2yo- 9yo. We have had glasses in the house for over 5 years. I agree with the pp mentioning taking her to a pediatric opthomologist. IMO it is vital for children to see a medical doctor that specializes in pediatrics to get appropriate care. Having the lenses checked is also important because people make errors and thay could be part of the issue. The office that prescribed her glasses should have explained in detain why the script is that way perhaps call them and request an explanation.

I agree with seeing a pediatric opthalmologist. My DS used to watch tv like that exactly but he is very farsighted and has esotropia. He stopped doing it for the most part once he had eye surgery.

She did see an opthamologist, not an optometrist. I asked the optometrist at Walmart about the prescription, but that is not who she saw for her exam. I couldn't find a pediatric one anywhere, maybe the next state over might have one I could drive her to.
