new challenge

It’s been a month since Sabrina has been prescribed glasses to strengthen her right eye (weak one), and she has now got two pairs of wrap round type glasses. This is on the top of ongoing eye patch training. Baby + glasses? (toddler precisely) Well, put this way, equal really hard work! She takes them off as soon as we put them on. Tried so many ways to distract her, by letting her hold things, our hands, keeping her busy etc, obvious things you can think of. I even put her socks on her hands (sorry I was mean, babe!) and that did last only for a minute. Eye training at this age is mainly to maintain her brain function for the future. If that stops, when she gets older, then even if she did another op, the brian won’t pick up what she sees. So we know how important this is, but how on earth are we suppose to do??? Anyone, any trick? xm


  1. Hi Makiko, I'm not sure, either it would help, but is it possible to put a rubber strap on the glasses, which would hold the glasses on the back of the head just like a swimming goggles? That way (hopefully) it won't be so easy for Sabrina to take them off. Wishing you all the best for her! xo, D.

  2. Perhaps a reward, a little treat of some kind? Not that Sabrina is a mini Pavlov dog... ;-)
    Good luck!!!

  3. Dear Makiko, how about put a glasses on yourself. If she see adults do it, she want the same. Tell her glasses is fun. I also agree with the reward. If you did the training, give yourself and little Sabrina rewards and make it fun? Best wishes.
