My son had torticollis from a traumatic birth.  He received PT but did not get fitted in a helmet to mold his head.  It turns out he may need glasses.  One ear is significantly lower than the other.  Has anyone else experienced needing to get their child glasses with irregular headshape? I assume there are certain types of glasses that would be better and maybe a tight strap would help to keep them on.  He has not been able to wear sunglasses because they fall off, so I am wanting to address this before we spend a lot of money.

How old is your son?

There is a line of eyewear available for patients with asymmetry called miraflex.

We recommend many of these for our patients who have this condition.


I believe their website may be


Hope this helps!
