No-not at all. If a child doesn’t wear the spectacle or doesn’t follow the treatment given, he/she remains as it is but cannot improve the rest which the child cannot manage now. The most important fact to remember is, if not corrected in early stages, it cannot be improved for the rest of a child's life. Please encourage the child to follow the instructions given by our practitioner.
