MY son's vision is weak probably due to our family history. His power is -2. 75 and -0. 5. It started with 3. 5 and 1 and I believe has gone down although doctors say that is not possible. They say that it was not tested correctly earlier. Can this power go down further? Are there eye exercises available to reduce power? I am taking care of the Vitamin A part. What else can be done? How about accupressure?

Dear M. I first wore glasses when I was about 5 years old. I had power of about +1 and +1. 75. I was told that my eye sight could improve with age but it was not a guarantee. By the time I was a teenager, my vision was 100% and I was off glasses for a few years. I am not sure if there are exercises to help improve the vision, but you could make sure that your son wears his glasses regularly. It may reduce with age in his case too. You could check with the ophthalmologist for suggestions to help improve his sight. How old is your child?

Dear parent, your doctor has correctly identified the problem as incorrect prescrption the previous time. to sort out the issue, please get the eye power checked after dilatation of eye with homatropine eye drops Sorry but there are no exercises or any special diet which can reduce your son's eye power.

Dear anurima Your power of glasses came down because it had to and not because you wore glasses. With growth of the body, the eye also grows in length which causes reduction in any plus powers. On the other hand minus powers tend to increase because of the same reason. with regular use of glasses though u were able to avoid amblyopia or lazy eye.
