My kid (2.5 years old) has +6 far-sightedness. Is it necessary to wear spectacles at this age?
Hyperopia (far-sightedness) in young children is normal physiologically, it is necessary for normal eye development. In your case the extent is above normal values, therefore spectacles are necessary (uncorrected condition may develop strabismus). Optical correction is a part of treatment procedures in children. By no means spectacles wearing should be neglected! And it is very important to follow all the doctor’s advice.
My daughter’s left eye has innate myopia )-6), while the right eye is +1. Is it dangerous?
With such a great difference wearing spectacles is the main treatment procedure in children. You daughter has to wear spectacles, otherwise the left eye may develop resistant vision deterioration. Occlusion (patching) is a procedure recommended in most cases: the better eye is covered for 20-40 minutes one or two times a day for one to 2.5 months period. This procedure should be prescribed and closely watched by your paediatrician ophthalmologist.

My son was diagnosed to have amblyopia. How this disease could have developed?
Amblyopia is a disease manifested by resistant vision acuity reduction in one or both eyes. As a rule amblyopia is developed with strabismus, high degrees of far-sightedness, astigmatism, myopia, but sometimes it may occur without “obvious reasons”.
Of course there are reasons, but only detailed diagnostic testing can discover the causes, as they are very much individual. For instance there may be cases when amblyopia can develop with refractive difference in the eyes of only one dioptre, while in another kid the brain can manage even the 4 dioptre difference. To manage the condition it is necessary to activate the “lazy” eye. If amblyopia is congenital, the child does not know that vision can be different and finds the imagery normal. Therefore the child will not complain. The condition can be revealed only through a comprehensive testing of the complete visual system. The period when a patient keeps feeling amblyopia is very short, while the time-span is best for the disease management. Treatment should never be put off! And doctors instructions should be strictly observed.
