We have been dealing with this since my daughter was 2 and at her first doctor's appointment the optometrist said a patch would not correct anything. She is very far sighted and has amblyopia in one eye. He eye doesn't wander it just crosses in when she tries to focus. Well we finally took her to a specialist who want to giver her and eye patch...I have family members who wore them for years and nothing happened. One of them is still virtually blind in one eye. I have read that Atropine drops have a much better margin of success...Is anyone else dealing with similar difficulties? Any suggestions on what else I can do for her?
