In this video, Dr. Suma Ganesh, Head of Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus, Dr. Shroffs Charity Eye Hospital, New Delhi, will discuss whether it is possible to remove glasses in childhood. This is the common question asked by parents. She explains that if the child is having a minus number or is myopic then there might be chances of increase in minus number or remains stable. These children should avoid near activities. Also, regular checkups are essential to check whether the number is increased or decreased. Glasses are given for clear vision and only can be removed after the age of 18 years through Lasik surgery.
