The glue was applied to the adhesive part of the patch. The patch was then applied over the good eye of the child before the glue dried. The children were allowed to go about their daily activities, including bathing and washing their faces. They wore the patch for 1 week. If any of the children wore the patch for less time, either because the patch spontaneously peeled off or was peeled off by the child, the time in hours was recorded. After 1 week, the glued patch was removed in the clinic quite easily and with little pain, as the patch was often partially detached by that time. We applied a fresh patch to the children after visual acuity testing in both eyes and external eye examination. The procedure was repeated for 4 consecutive weeks. With the use of glued patches, compliance improved gradually in all cases. Patient 3 wore the patch for 2 hours on 4 consecutive days at the end of the study. Patient 5 wore the patch for 6 days in the first week of the study and 7 days in the second week. Although our study was not designed to evaluate efficacy of amblyopia treatment using glued patches, improvement in visual acuity was noted in 2 cases. Three children developed mild erythema where the skin was in contact with the glue. In all these cases, the erythema resolved without any treatment in less than 2 days. None of the children developed excoriation or abrasion of the skin where the patch was applied.
