Welcome to HCM portal,
your daughter has a small cylindrical error.anti reflectiv lenses are a superior quality lenses.Such powers for children are good as they have to study a lot.You will have to see the acceptability of glasses for the child.In adults also such glasses are optional ,if they feel comfortable they continue otherwise use it when they are working.For your child she will use glasses for the time being and have yearly checkup.
