The Tomato Glasses journey started when I noticed that may 24 month old son’s eyes were not aligning correctly. Our trip to the ophthalmologist confirmed Accommodative Esotopia. His condition Hyperopia is a result of a small eye, which caused his eyes to strain so much that they crossed and eventually one eye became Iazy.
The only correction was to wear thick convex lenses and to wear an eye patch to prevent a lazy eye known as Amblyopia. The limited choice of frames on the market with the nose pads were only in metal. They were heavy and bulky and constantly kept falling off his face. Compliance was poor as my son refused to wear them due to the discomfort and weight.
