Do any of your babies have lazy eyes?

I have two munchkins with lazy eye ( thanks dad!) lol.. What kind of treatments are your kids doing? My 3 yo dd is wearing glasses to correct and my 7 yo ds has to patch and do dilating drops daily along with glasses. Our dr actually said to patch him and let him play video games and do hand eye coordination skills.

  • My 11 yr old does. He used to have to patch (and yes, we were told to let him play video games and stuff while patched lol), but now he just wears glasses. It's been improving steadily year after year, so I'm happy. My youngest has a very, very slight one, so minor that he didn't need to patch. He just can't see. lol I pay extra for thinner lenses because otherwise he'd have coke bottle glasses.
