#1 UNDERSTAND THE MEDICAL TERMS

When parents are told that their child needs to wear an eye patch many become dazed and confused.  It is unexpected and the medical terms used to describe their child's diagnosis are difficult to pronounce and spell.  The eye doctor might create an intimidating, scary tone which can frighten the parents, but it helps them understand the severity of the eye problem. Some parents have left the doctor's office in tears unsure of what just happened. The first thing to do is educate yourself. Call the doctor/nurse back when you get home and have them spell the confusing words, ask more questions and then do your research.  We have many of the terms listed at http://www.patchpals.com/terminology
Please share your eye patch diagnosis experience.
