hi... yes she has to use her specs regularly...strictly...whole home n at school. she will not have any problem if she uses them regularly...but if she doesnot use them..then she may have eye fatigue..inability to concentrate at school...and may be squint. initilly she may have problem after wearing her specs as she is not used to it..but u have to make sure she uses them regularly.
