Toddlers with glasses

My DD is 15 months old and is very farsighted in her left eye which makes her left eye go crossed when trying to focus, and her eye doctor prescribed her glasses. They'll be coming in next week, and I really hope this fixes her problem. we caught it early on and the eye just started crossing recently. The doctor said this was the easist type of lazy eye to correct. So do any of your kids have this? Did the glasses stop the "bad" eye from crossing?? He said the next step would be patching if the glasses do not work.

My granddaughter has worn glasses since she was 1. Her eye would point straight into her nose. She was born that way so hers is more prominent than your daughter's. The reason I say that is because the glasses didn't help Ehma and she had to have surgery to correct it. But if your daughter's is caused by her vision and it just started to cross, chances are very good the glasses will correct it. They did for my nephew and his son. Instead of the eye patch, Ehma's doctor had us put tape on the right lens of her glasses so the lazy eye had to work harder to straighten. In her case that didn't work either, hence the surgery.

I read that kids were made to play a video game to correct the lazy eye, like tetris ( for older kids though)
