pennysuedog:She still has to wear it. She is doing better at leaving it on, but we are not seeing very much if any improvement. She has an appointment soon, but her Dr. has already started talking about surgery which scares the crap out of me.
((hugs)) Sometimes surgery is really easier than patching, anyways, and a much quicker fix. Keep me posted!
I will. I have some comfort in knowing she has the best pediatric ophthalmologist in the state who specializes in Strabismus.
I have never had to put any of my kids under full anesthesia. Working on something as delicate and important as her eyes is really nerve wracking, I get that people have great results, I have also heard stories that were not as successful resulting in more surgeries and other complications. I think it is also more difficult to determine how to tweak the eye muscles in someone who doesn't communicate enough yet. I would love for her to look like every other child right now and to not get comments from curious children but I don't want to be hasty.
As for the age thing Violet's did not start until after her first birthday. Probably Novemeber.
