Hello doctor,

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Unfortunately, there is no proven treatment available for this condition. People have tried various treatments like intraocular pressure reducing drops, or atropine in children. It is a good practice to get your refraction done six-monthly as using improper glasses is a stimulus for eyes to grow more especially in children.
