Dear mr jadhav First of all do not worry. Atharva has refractive error or spectacle number which has myopia (minus) and astigmatism (cylinder number with axis) But luckily his vision is only two to three lines less.he is still young so there is still scope of improving,vision by regular use of glasses and alternate patching,the eye. For glasses look for sturdy frames with adequately large size.since he has cylindrical number,if his sprctacle is tilted or twisted he will have difficulty in seeing. He needs 6 monthly checkup.also get his retina check up done if not already done by your doctor by putting,dilating drops in his eyes. Till age of 18 the number usually increases as body height increases. There is still no treatment for retarding increase in spectacle number at this point of time. Keep me updated about his vision and spectacles Regards
