#6 CREATE A GAME PLAN

Some children will need to wear an eye patch for 2 hours every day, others may be given the task of eye patching all day, every day.  Just thinking about eye patching for this amount of time can be very daunting.  We suggest taking a deep breath and creating a game plan.  Ask yourself questions and then generate answers that will work for you.  What activities can my child do while patching?  Will that activity be safe if their eye sight is fuzzy?  Should I offer a reward for compliant patching?  What if my child cries?  What if we are only able to patch for 15 minutes?  If you do some anticipating and preplanning you may be able to help things go smoother on your first day.
