: My four year old daughter has be diagnosed with an eye problem that distates that she wears an eye patch for 4 hours a day until she is nine years old. I am looking for the adhesive eye patches for kids maybe with cartoons on them, or colors to make it more fun for her. I love her dearly and want to make this as pleasurable as possible for her. Might anyone have any I deas where to get these or are they even available?
My Two year old daughter has been wearing eye patches for about 8 months. There is a brand of patches that comes with little stickers (Covelet Brand). The stickers are pictures of animals but aren't that cute. My daughter could not use this brand because it irratated her skin too much. I was reading on a web-site that one mother had bought a non-adhesive patch (the kind with the strap) and covered it with colorful fabric. I thought that was a good idea, and she let her daughter pick out the fabric. Good luck it's not much fun.
