High power
My son is having high power in both his eyes. -7 normal -8 cyl . But doctor prescribed glasses with -7 and -4 cyl which doc says is max which can be given. Also he is finding difficulty in reading and moving around new place as he is scared of falling down. Doctor says his eyes are oval in shape rather than being spherical which makes difficult for him to see normally. He is using his intelligence to cope his situation and managing which should not be disturbed. Any therapy which can be done to improve his eyes.

Hi, normally full cylinder is not prescribed. A full spherical power with partial cylinder correction is usually enough. So don't worry. How old is your child please?
Next Steps
make sure the child wears the glasses continuously when awake & get regular check ups every few months to monitor progress.
