Hi Heena, yes it might be a good idea to get his eyes checked again for a change of power or number. Sometimes, children also face this problem because of too much strain on the eyes which weakens the eye muscles. A good opthalmologist, can suggest some simple eye exercises to relax and strengthen the muscles.
