Ok so you might remember me.I have something to share.Me AND my older sister went to the optometrist one day.Then we both got glasses.I wore my glasses because i was only 9 and I figured wearing glasses would fix them like braces and I trusted them.On the other hand my Older sister was like I AM NOT GOING TO WEAR THESE.And never wore them.I remember whenever i tried her glasses on they felt more heavy while mine were lighter.That meant her prescreption was more than mine.But because she didn’t wear her glasses she easily went back to 20/20.My dad even thought she was faking But while she was ok My prescrption changed every single year.
5 years later I was at -5.25 OS and -5.75 OD and my sister…Nothing. Man I really regret not doing hat my sister did. So if it was a genetic disorder then why did my sister not wear her glasses and got better and I wear mine and my vision gets worse.And now Im the only one in my family with myopia.And recently I have been seeing little shooting stars in my vision (not a good sign)
Is making your child not wear their first glasses helpful or not?
