My daughter went for a eye exam 9 months ago. I was told dd had bad eyes and needed glasses. My daughter can't see well without her glasses. I was told dd's eyes were healthy. Today I get dd new glasses since she lost hers and the lady fitting the glasses said my dd had a lazy eye. My daughter has eye allergies and her right eye gets red from time to time. I thought her Optometrist would of told me this. What should I do?


Its her right eye. I see nothing wrong with it. This was taken a few months ago.

You need an opthalmologist, not an optometrist.

Strabimus, or lazy eye, is common. Treatment is patching of the stronger eye and/or surgery on the eye muscles. Surgery is simple and typically outpatient.

My dad has lazy eye and in pictures I can see it in my eye too. I'm not sure how they correct it, mine hasn't been an issue aside from looking droopy sometimes.

I have lazy eye.  It was corrected by putting a patch over my strong eye.

I was reading about putting a patch over the stronger eye two hours a day. I can do that till she goes to the specialist.

I knew there was something wrong with her right eye and never was able to figure it out.

Wait until you have the DX first. Some things can look like Strab but aren't, like spasmus nutans.
