Everyone has been asking me how Haven's eyes are doing and how they look.....check her out! She is wearing her new robe Great Grandma Ohio sent to her. She has been begging for robes! She actually looks like a little Smurf to me! :)
Her eyes are doing great. She handled surgery and recovery AWESOME! She did want to know EXACTLY what they did to her eyes. I didn't tell her - I told her I'd tell her later when she's older.
You'll notice one pupil is much larger than the other. During the past year Haven's vision in the left eye went from 20/25 to 20/70. We began Atropine drops last November to get her prepared for surgery. After surgery they tested her eyes and her vision has started to improve slightly. THIS IS GREAT NEWS TO US!!! So we are back on the Atropine drops twice a week.
What they do is actually blind the good eye (big pupil) and force her brain to learn to use the bad eye again. The doctor wants us to make sure she is doing lots of workbooks or coloring books as it will help with the vision more than anything else because it makes her have to focus more and work harder at it.
