My 5 year old grandaughter had an eye test at school and parents were
told she has 20-70 Far Vision? I have never heard of this, what is
it, what is usually done for this condition? Thank you!!!
If she has not already had a full eye exam with an eye doctor who has experience with children, she needs to have one in the near future. It could be that it is something simple like nearsightedness, for which she would need glasses, or it could be amblyopia which could cause vision problems in the future if not treated while a child is young.
