Hi doctor,

My son is 5 years old. His doctor told that he has a cylindrical power of 1 and 1.25. He also said that his muscle power is weak. Is it a must to wear eyeglasses?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I can understand your concern regarding your child.

  • Yes, he definitely has to use glasses as you said that your child is having cylindrical power in both eyes.
  • If he will not use glasses, then he will keep on complaining of headache and keep on squeezing his eyes, which is very distressing.
  • This power will increase with age. So, you need to take all the precautions like improving his diet by including green vegetables.
  • I would also like to know his full prescription whether it is myopic or hypermetropic.
