My five year old son has finally started wearing his glasses 100% of the time now. Two years and nine pair of glasses later. But I still have no luck in getting him to wear his eye patch. He is diagnosed with adhd autism and behavioral problems and take medication daily for that. Two years ago I noticed him looking at everything with his right eye. Went to a pediatric eye doc. And they told me he was born with poor vision in his left eye and had trained himself not to use it and that if he did not start using it he would loose the vision in that eye all together but seriously I would stand a better chance of pulling his eye out than getting him to wear his patch. I read on the internet about a developmental optomitrist who can do theropy on the eyes. So any suggestions? Any one used a developmental optomitrist?Answer Question

They make disposable adhesive ones in different patterns and colors. Maybe if he picks out his own patch he'll be more likely to wear it.

I know when my husband was a child, they frosted the one lens of his glasses. I know it's not the most ideal, as there is still some peripheral vision, but maybe this could be something they would consider.
