Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Give your child glasses.

Get his eyesight checked with glasses. If there is any amblyopia, start patching therapy. His power will increase with an increase in age. Power usually becomes stable at the age of 18 to 21 years.

I am sorry, but there is no medicine or exercise to get rid of glasses. Lasik is a very good option for this but it is possible only after age of 18 years. I hope this will help you.
