Enhancing Reading In A Cross-Eyed Patient

Several weeks ago I examined a young lady for nearsightedness.  Everything was normal.  She then started to tell me about her daughter who had eye surgery for a cross-eyed condition.  I told her the specialist whom she was seeing had a great reputation.  The eyes for the most part appeared straight.  I told the patient that I might want to see her daughter to see if there’s anything further that can be done.  I also mentioned to her that there were specialists at the Optometry School at Western University that could also help.

I subsequently examined her daughter.  The mom remarked that her daughter’s reading could be improved cheapest air conditioner installation near me.  Her distant prescription she came in with was fairly close to what I found she needed.  However, when I placed an additional lens in front of these for up close, her reading increased significantly  This would require the patient to wear a bifocal.  I am really looking forward to the results of her daughter’s performance in school.  I also told the mom that her daughter may need vision training to help improve her vision skills.
