Brinson went and saw Dr. Coats today for her 6 month follow-up eye exam. While her actual Rx hasn't changed her...wait for it...big word....AMBLOYPIA (scary word huh?) is still there. That' s just a nice big medical term for lazy eye. We have to patch her good eye (rt eye) for 2 hrs daily (oooooh fun fun here we go!) and then go back the end of August to see him again. Her head tilting that she's had could be caused from this so we are hoping the patching will help. He did say that surgery might be an option but wouldn't make any decisions on that until she's older (if the patching doesnt work obviously).
Brinson's NICU mate Noah had the surgery and looks like they had some success. I don't think for Brinson however that she will be able to get rid of the glasses, she will have them forever. So now the fun part....going to the eye shop in the next week or so to pick out new frames for her!! There should be lots more choices now that she's bigger. The frames she has now are a bit small and the lenses have so many teeth marks I am sure it's hard for her to see.
She sees the GI doc on Weds so I am sure there will be more updates! Hope everyone had a good Father's Day.
