Parent Support

Encouraging a young child to wear an eye patch requires patience, parental control, and creativity. Eye patching should be non-negotiable, establishing your authority while ensuring your child's comfort. It's important to strike a balance so that your child doesn't feel miserable during the process. Offering a favorite activity or treat as a reward after a successful eye patching session can motivate your child to wear the patch. Utilizing incentives can be an effective strategy when initiating eye patching treatment.

To track progress and set expectations, we provide a downloadable reward calendar. This tool allows you and your child to set eye patching goals and enjoy deciding on appropriate "rewards" for a job well done.
