Eye Doctor

This morning we spent two hours at the eye doctor not with Henry but with Mary. Henry would have lasted maybe 10 minutes. Mary on the other hand was roaming the halls, talking to the nurses, making older people smile and inspecting the whole office.

We took Mary because I've noticed her right eye turning in. Most people don't see it and we usually notice it more in pictures then anything else. I've asked our pedi and they told us for peace of mind, just take her to the eye doctor, so that is what we did.

And apparently mother's intuition is correct, her right eye goes in, her left eye a little too but not as much as her right. Oh and her left pupil is slightly bigger than her right. She has what is called Stabismus. It can be managed with glasses, it could correct its self or she could need surgery. Right now we are monitoring it to see what happens. We go back in August to see if anything improved or if it possibly got worse. Our next step would be glasses.

Most people don't notice what she has and that is a good sign. The less it happens the less chance of glasses. Since its not that apparent and less than 50% there is less concern and hopefully it will stay that way.

Here are some pictures from our visit.






The last one of Elmo is how we kept her busy while we waited. I think Elmo called over 20 times.

The appointment took about two hours and I'd say I was very impressed with Mary. She smiled and laughed through most of the tests and were knocking people out with her blue eyes and smile.

I'm glad we went and I feel better that we are on the right track to fixing what is wrong. The Nardiello Family: Eye Doctor
