1. David Walsh David Walsh United States says:

    I have a really bad lazy eye and I'm 42. I have two surgeries to try to correct the lazy eye. One the the lazy eye and one on my good eye to try to straighten the other one. They worked somewhat but not perfect. I always tell my parents I wish they never used the patch on me. I can't see anything clearly or read on my lazy eye and only use it for peripheral vision. During those young years I could not read in 1st grade (because of patch) I could not participate in normal activities. This really affected me. I don't think it's right to make kids wear the patch.
