Chapter 16 "For Parents Only"

The parents of a child who has lost vision in one eye can be crucial determinants of their child's reaction and subsequent adjustment to monocular vision. Here, Mr. Brady offers an excellent advice summary of the advice of experts.

"There seems to be general agreement on several points: Discussions of the loss must be adjusted according to the child's age, sex, emotional stability, maturity, natural coordination, athletic inclination, and the child-parent relationship. Moreover, if the parents recognize the true impact of eye loss, this will help them maintain a calm, dispassionate attitude that can prevent the build-up of exaggerated fears. Certainly, emotional displays in the presence of the child are out of order. They all agree that children, in general, adapt quickly, and that the younger the child, the quicker and more complete is the adaptation." (pg. 119)
