Not overtime: The left eye, due to its high refractive needs, has lowered vision. If your son is younger than 8 years, things can help this (see your pediatric ophthalmologist). If older than 8, it may be permanent. All eyes work as hard as they can, all the time the eyes are open so these eyes will not wear our or work overtime.
