Quoting kitermom:" So I've been horrible and haven't kept up on my daughter's eye patching. BUT i'm on the good foot now ... [snip!] ... to make it better but she ate that super fast and now we're playing video games on pbs but it's still driving her nuts!!"
I dont really have any tips because my daughter is almost 7 and wears hers everyday at school she just leaves it there in her desk. She got her glasses just before summer and they wanted to try patchiing well that didnt work so well because it was summer right...she was always outside not doing school work and video games all the time. But now that shes back in school she wears it everyday, and we go back in december to see if its helped if not then we just live with the fact that her eyes arent getting better.
I soooo hate that she has glasses! Just let her know that the patch is helping her and may make her eyes better, and that she is lucky she gets to wear one and no one else does!
