Plus glasses to correct strabismus

This infant was examined a week earlier because his left eye had started to turn inwards now and then. During office examination he had mostly esophoria but now and then the left eye remained turned inward after it had been covered. Cover in front of the right eye disturbed more than in front of the left eye, i.e. the left eye was becoming a lazy eye. The infant got correction of hyperopia, plus glasses, and a translucent cover on the lower part of the right lens. He accepted the glasses well and a week later the use of the eyes was symmetric. He used the glasses only a few months asking for them in the morning, then refused to use them. At that time he was ortophoric so there was no need to use glasses.
