After the eye exam of my 20 months old son, the pediatric ophthalmologist told me that my son is having astigmatism and nearsightedness and suggested following prescription for eyeglasses:
R: -3.25 (SPH), +2.50 (CYL), 086 degree Axis
L: -3.75 (SPH), +3.25 (CYL), 092 degree Axis
My son is not very cooperative in wearing glasses, can you please tell me if these eye problems are mild to postpone the need of eyeglass till the age of 2-3 years or strong enough to make my kid used to it.
