Pain in eye, suggested glasses. Will the power increase with age, how can normal vision be achieved?

My daughter who is 7 year old was complaining about pain in the eye. We showed her to an ophthalmologist . He did some test and said there is problem in the eye and suggested to wear glasses. She has +1.0 in left eye and +1.25 in the right eye. My question is will this power increases with her age. Is there anything that can be done to regain her normal vision . I mean can she see without her glasses. Please advise. Thanks & Regards,

Ophthalmologist 's  Response
Your daughter is having refractive error, hypermetropia. The refractive power is +1.0 and +1.25 in left eye and right eye respectively.
The refractive power is known to increase in children because of increase in the axial length of the eye ball. Hence he should get his eyes checked once in 6 months to one year to change the glass if there is any increase in the refractive power.
Thank you
