There are very few risks associated with patching. I think you need to have a chat to your optometrist 😄
Most "issues" (if any occur) are rectified by stopping the patching so you just need to monitor things.
The bigger risks are the loss of depth perception and not patching and therefore not allowing the visual system to develop fully.
Patching is much less invasive than atropine drops or surgery .
