TREATMENT WITH COVERING

Covering of the eye is the most efficient way to practice the bad eye (by strabismus, glasses or eye injury problem) so that the vision will be improved (maybe even as good as the best eye). If glasses must be worn, the cover is sticked on the skin and the glasses should be worn above it.
       If strabismus is the cause of 1 eye seeing less , it's also possible that the good eye shows strabismus if the very eye improves. This is a good sign because it indicates that the brains no longer prefer to use 1 eye.
 
   TIPS FOR COVERING
HOW: To avoid cheating, it's more advisable to  patch on the skin  rather than cover the glass itself. Only in exceptional circumstances (eg during a period of damaged skin) you can cover the glass itself. Best use "Ortopad" or "Opticlude Eye patches (good stick, skin color), which you can get without a prescription. The patch should be well fastened without cheating holes. It's best you make some cuts on the nose side of the patch, so it's is more adapted to the shape of the face  You can save money by making your own patches : ask a role "Mefix" patch in the pharmacy. If you cut a large and a small oval, you can stick them together and so you have a patch similar to the opticlude patch.
     It's best to cover at night c when the child is working intensively visual (TV viewing, video games, stringing beads, coloring, puzzles. Colouring certain letters in a newspaper is a good exercise . To cover while eating, is less usefull because there not much visual activity that asks for effort. Sometimes it's best to cover during school hours , although this can be a psychological burden for the child. Please contact the teacher in any case. Covering In school is easiest when the child is reluctant to wear the patch. Children dare not refuse when the teacher covers their eye and somsetimes also other children have the same problem and also have to wear a patch.

  
 MOTIVATION:
 Make your child clear that the patch is for improving the sight with the lazy eye. Occasionally a reward (and sometimes even punishment) can support your child. Cover the eye of a doll or bear  to encourage your child. Imagine this as a game ( "we are going to play being pirates). A child is often very proud to walk around with a patch with a drawing on of Mom or Dad. If the child constantly wants to remove the patch (especially in case of  young children), a splint around the arm or a  more solid patch (Poroplast of the firm Stella from Liege, ordered through the pharmacy) can do wonders.
     The parents must be motivated! Know therefore that exercising the lazy eye leads to a better vision( "practice makes perfect"), it would be much worse to do nothing !.The period before the sixth year is the most crucial because only then a good facial aging can be obtained (read: the development of brains, so the optical information is used maximal). Know that covering can sometimes encourage strabismus or can worsen it. This risk certainly weighs against the risk  of having only 1 good eye through life . Accidents happen quickly.  In the beginning the covering is very intense (day and night to cover) but necessary to exercise the lazy eye. Later on 1h a day will be enough to maintain the visual outcome untill the age of eight (even though the eye has had strabismus surgery). Otherwise the eye will get worse again. After 8 years the vision will stabilise. That's why:
UNDER 8 YEARS:  if 1 eye sees bad you must wear glasses(and possibly a cover)
OVER 8 YEARS: if 1 eye seeswell,  you don't nead any glasses
