i would like to enter this conversation since im sailing in the same boat as nani.
my son is 4.3 yrs and recently i took him for a routine test. the Doctor told me that he's got a cylindrical number in both eyes. the final number is yet to come, since the Doctor said first he needs to dialate the eyes and then give exact number. however, he also mentioned that eyes of children are not completely developed till they are 5 years. Doctor also said that eye number has nothing to do with watching tv or too much reading, etc. its due to our genes, like the colour of our eyes, height, looks, etc. (im not sure as to how much of this is true)
i'm working too and my son is looked after by my in laws. i can understand nani's helplessness and frustration. though my in laws try to take care of him to the best of their capacity, age surely takes a toll.
i'm tensed about my son's eyes and would do anything to ensure that he has a good eye sight.
taking him to Garden is good, but by the time i come home, its already dark. nevertheless i take him to the compound to play at whatever time im back. have also started giving him carrot and beetroot soup.
any other tips would be highly appreciated.
thanks and best regards,
