Ophthalmologist 's  Response

you have not said if the power is + or -. if it is + or hypermetropia there are chances that she may grow out of it. . if it is - or myopia the power tends to increase until certain age . . Refractive errors are NOT associated with poor nutrition. . Feeding your child with lots of carrots may not help these errors . . but may help her ocular surface, skin etc. . but too much of even that is not good and may be deleterious. .nothing to worry Sir . . ask them to wear glasses and have a periodic eye check up . .

welcome to healthcaremagic portal
your daughter suffering from myopia will keep on increasing the power till she is 18 as the problem is growth related and is due to increasing length of eyeball.The only thing for you to do is to take care of the nutrition.

many a times vitamin deficiency is the reason for increasing number. Carrot is good source of vit. A and should be given in any form juice jam veg or raw. To improve appetite sy. Livomyn 2 tsf is drug of choice. Add aamla also to her diet for long time beneficial results.
