Dear Abhilasha. You could take her to the optical store and let her pick a frame of her choice. Since she is 7 years old, you may explain to her the importance of wearing glasses and how it would affect her sight if she did not wear them at all. Since she has a mild problem, she can wear them only while watching tv, working on the computer or when studying both at home and at school. I do not think it is a good idea to let her discontinue wearing her glasses as if she wears them now, her vision may become normal with age. It happened to me- I wore glasses from the age of 5 and my vision was normal at the age of 13 years. But the best person to ask is the optician. You may check with him for the best options to help your daughter wear the glasses and how often during the day. Hope this helps.

Abhilasha, please make sure that she wears specs at the right age to avoid the eye sight worsening. My son, who is almost 8, started wearing specs almost a year ago. His power was quite high(R- -2. 75, L- -1. 75). However, I take him every 3 months for a review. now his right eye sight has reduced a bit. His vision is corrected though. Vision is important ,rather than the eye power. Let her wear specs regularly and get her those light weight frames. She will find it better once she starts wearing them as she will be able to see better.
