Squint eyes. Have cylindrical power. Will corrective glasses help?

My 4 year old daughter has had a squint right eye ( outwards) since age 1 . Doctors have now checked her vision and there is cylindrical power minus1.5 in that eye while the other eye is normal. Doctors have indicated that this corrective glasses gives a good chance over the next year or so by use of glasses and some patch ( blocking the good eye) . Is there anything to be worried about since she is only 4 years now ? Will she need to wear glasses for a long time now ?
