Amblyopia-Looking for sticky eye patches for kids.

We just found out that my middle son has Amblyopia in his left eye and the treatment is for him to wear an eye patch a few hours a day. Anyone else gone through this? Where did you buy the eye patches?

Here he is with his patch... He is quite excited to be a pirate!

  • Yeah... they said it has to be sticky. They don't want him to be able to see out of that side at all.

  • My DD wore them for years, we bought them at most drug stores. If yours doesn't have them talk to the pharmacy, they can order it for you. You can also order off Amazon.

    We used felted patches that went over her glasses. Check the link below. Sorry I can't make it clickable on my mobile device.
