  • He's not that bad, but he potentially could be by the time he reaches adulthood. Mine are close, but still within the range to be corrected with contacts so I can drive. How old is your son? Depending on exactly how they're that bad, it's possible they can at least partially correct it with one of the laser procedures.

  • No, our DD has zero eye problems.

    Holy crud. I didnt' even know RX's went that high. I thought I was blind at -3.75. =(. I am so sorry, and I have no advice. But I will offer you a bump.

  • Thank you I'm sad and his Dr won't do lasik until his 21 I know if they do it now it would only help for a little but I wish it will stop getting worst

  • my daughter's eyes are pretty bad but she can still function without her glasses. the doctor said the glasses will help correct her vision so that she won't have problems later on. she only has to wear them 4 hours a day.
