Re: for mamas who take their babies to well child appointments.

If lazy eye isn't taken care of it could cause problems (specifically permanantly reduced vision), so she is going to be watched close to make sure her vision stays good. (and lazy eye can typically NOT be detected by a regular person and many times can only be diagnosed by a pediatric opthalmologist, so it's very important to me we keep on top of getting her vision checked)

We kinda vax on schedule. DD was vaxed at her 3 and 6 month well baby checks and she got a fever and felt miserable. So now, we are only doing one shot at a time with at least one month in between, probably more.

You know, my mother was told I was going to go blind within a couple years if i didn't have mine fixed, I was a small child then.. My mother didn't have the surgery.. and I have perfect Eyesight.

I'd be researching anything they might suggest for treatment.

I've never had problems telling when someone has lazy eye or not. Mine is Very slight, and i've had people ask me if I knew I had it. LOL
Miranda has a slight case herself, although it's never been Diagnosed. Well, besides anyone but myself. lol
