What do these refractive values indicate?

Hi Doctor My daughter has been prescribed a spectacle with -.50 for both eyes. Before six months the left eye vision was -.25. Since its negative vision, could please advise if this is increasing and will be increasing further? She is now 9 years old and is wearing spectacles at school. Kindly advise! Regards Anoop

It is possible that her vision may worsen further but to determine if this is the case, you would need to speak to her doctor for a prognosis.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
