How old were they whem they had to get them? How bad was there eyesight?

My little boy is 3 and he has to wear glasses and in 3 months they will retest and most likely patch the good eye so the brain makes the other eye work harder...how common is this?

My daughter has worn bifocals since she was 2. My first and only clue there was a problem was when she started crossing one eye when she turned 2. She has accommodative esotropia. We have tried patching & it hasn't worked so we will be doing surgery this summer. She's 6 today :)

 My daughter got hers when she was 5.

Does he have convergence insufficiency? When I had that as a kid, they did the same thing with the patch, it was to strengthen the weaker eye.
