light sensitive eyes

Good day

my boy went in for an eye test and the report was +3.000D sphere and +2.25D sphere.

Does he really need glasses, because he is 15 months old and will not wear anything on his head, not even sun glasses and the light is very eretating to him??

Have you taken your baby son to see a paediatric eye specialist [ophthalmologist]? It is unusual for such a young baby to be so sensitive to light and the reason for this needs to be correctly diagnosed.Only then will you know what the next step is in the correct treatment for his problem.

I have taken him and the report from the ophthalmologist was that he that his eyes are was +3.000D sphere and +2.25D sphere.

And on the report it states that he might need the optometris to give him glasses, but he doesn''t want anything on his head specially glasses.
