YPK Posted September 23, 2011 Report Share Posted September 23, 2011 My 7 yr old DD was diagnosed with 20/30 vision during her recent checkup. Her doctor predicts she would probably wear eyeglasses next year or the year after because both my DH and I are myopic (me especially). I felt really sad when I heard this as DD loves to dance and I wonder how wearing glasses may impact her. At this age, she is too young to wear contacts. I started wearing contacts in my teens and was so much happier as my peripheral viision improved, and everything from running to playing tennis became easier. Please share your experience if your DC wears glasses and loves to dance. We are trying to do some eye exercises with her and unsure if this really helps. We want to delay her wearing glasses for as long as possible,. We are also trying to do more outdoor activities to develop long range vision. So much of what DD does is indoors using short range vision, like reading, piano etc. Any advice appreciated. Thanks ! Quote Link to comment
