Brief Answer:
He is having simple refractive error.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Welcome to Health care magic

I reviewed the history.

Your son is having refractive error in the form of myopic astigmatism. The refractive error is minimal and it is not on the higher side hence no need to worry.
But he requires spectacles for correction of the refractive error.
The refractive error tends to change rapidly in children because of growth of the eye ball. Hence he requires eye examination frequently atleast once in a year and correction or change of the spectacles according to the refractive error.

He needs food rich in vitamin A for better growth of the eye. Green leafy vegetables, carrot and fish are good in vitamin A. He needs to avoid watching television from near and atleast a distance of 6 feet or more should be maintained while watching television.


Hope the information is helpful to you.

Thank you
With regards
