My daughter. My first child was born with strabismus due to abnormal development of some of the muscles in her eyes. She was treated with patching therapy for a number of months starting around 3 months & again around 18 months. She tolerated it fine & as she got older, wore the patch in daycare without any problems from the other kids! we bought patches with cute designs & the other kids thought it was cool!
Me. Well, i hope someone else answers, since now i'm 51. But from age 1 month to about 13 i wore one due to a lazy eye. As a kid i learned the phrase, "sticks and stones can break my bones, but words can never hurt me, " and i still stick to that, but i endured a lot of "bullying." my parents and siblings were the greatest of help.
