Ideally the patient should try to see with the lazy eye with other eye being patched for at least 5 days a week. This will help to make the lazy eye active. Initially there may be some difficulty in reading with lazy eye but the patient should keep on trying with other eye patched. If he finds it impossible to carry out his routine activities with normal eye patched, the procedure should be adopted to the maximum possible.
It is always better to opt for cyclo-refraction
for prescription of glasses.
