Decreased eyesight

Dear Dr.

my son is 7 years old. Recently i took him to an doctor and checked his eyes. I was surprosed with the result.

his both eyes have become weak.

the power was as follows:
Right eye: SPH +0.5 and CYL -0.75 Axis: 12
Left eye: SPH + 2.25 and CYL -2.5 Axis: 160

We are very much worried. The doctor has prescribed glass but please let me know urgently how he can get rid of from this weak sight and how the sight power can be rwagined. pleas epls help.

First of all, FOR YOU AND ALL PARENTS OUT THERE YOU CHILD SHOULD BE SCREENED BY A PEDIATRICIAN OR SEEN BY AN OPTOMETRIST OR OPHTHALMOLOGIST BETWEENAGE 3 AND 4 TO DETECT POOR VISION IN ONE EYE (AMBLYOPIA).

The problem is likely that the vision in the LE is subnormal and won't come up even with glasses (aneisometropic amblyopia). He likely will need a trial of patching the RE to bring LE vision up. That is both difficult and at his age low success. He should be under the care of a pediatric ophthalmologist. If you have other children check them for the same problem.

We cannot answer these questions. They have to be by the ophthalmologist caring for your child. Please re-read my original comments.
