Hi Hema Santhosh,
He has a refractive error
condition called Myopic astigmatism
, in which the Light entering the eyes are focused in front of the Retina
,due to Irregular curvature of the Cornea/ the lens. So the person affected has a blurred vision
. This is one of the commonest causes of blurred vision especially in children and is treatable.
Since you haven't mentioned how much your son was able to read ( in the chart) with the glasses, I cannot comment on the lazy eye. Any eye which is not been used to see ,due to lack of light stimulus on the retina becomes a Lazy eye.
Usually refractive errors diagnosed under the age of 8 yrs, when prescribed the correct glasses and if the child wears constantly , then the lazy eye will improve as time goes by.
So don't worry and all you need to do is
-encourage your child to wear the glasses full time .
- get a corneal topography done to assess the shape of the cornea and to rule out any thinning of it.
- get him examined again after 4 mths duration with the same doctor so you can keep a track.
- once your child is in an age to handle Contact lens
, try it.
- once the power gets stabilised( by around 18 yrs) then Laser
procedures can be done( to be free of glasses) if his Cornea and retina are okay .
Hope this helps :).
