My dear fellow user,
Im trying to reduce my son´s myopia. One myopia user sent me a great link about child´s myopia and there is something I dont quite understand. Here is the paragraph:
"I generally recommend a much more nuanced approach to normalized prescription, for children. We want the child to see 20/20, on a well lit Snellen, being able to read about half of the line. If it’s all of it, if we get 20/15, the prescription is too strong. Just at the edge of 20/20, on a correctly done Snellen, allowing the child to see clearly.
If you give the child a 20/40 prescription, the frustration will be too significant, especially when you combine with enforcing close-up rules, having another pair of glasses for close-up vision, and limiting close-up time. We have to compromise."
It says we want the child to see all the way to 20/20 but only to half of the line? Does that mean, that the child should be able to read 20/20 but with quite an effort (it should not be straightforward)? Is that what this is trying to say?
