Her eyes look normal most of the time, but occasionally there will be something "off". As usual, when you are at the doctor, everything appears fine and it's hard to tell if there is a problem. Initially, I was afraid that might be the case.
It turns out that she is very far-sighted and her eyes definitely have some problems. He explained that because her eyes are so bad and she has to strain so hard, that sometimes it pulls the eye inwards.
Looks like Blake gets to be the little toddler running around with glasses. Her prescription is a +4.25, and the doctor didn't even write it for the full amount. Mine is only +1.25 and I struggle to see. I can't even imagine what she must see the world like.
The doctor made it sound serious, yet not something to be super alarmed and panicked over. He said that it was something that if we didn't try to correct, her vision may never develop and she might not see. He talked about how this was going to be a rough battle, but he was confident that we could help. It sounded like we might be spending a lot of time in the future with him. Yay.
I'm wondering how in the heck I'm going to get this girl to keep glasses on her head, even if we get the goggle ones. But I am excited to see what changes are going to happen. With her eyes so bad and straining so much, I have to wonder if she gets headaches, or is in discomfort. I'm curious to watch how she reacts when she can finally see things. Hopefully, I can get her glasses tomorrow, and I'll post a picture of how she looks in them. Wish me luck.
