Look at Conner's eyes. Do you think his left eye pulls in towards the center? Well, obviously it pulls towards the center. Do you think it'll self correct? My sister pointed it out to me the other day and now I can't stop staring at it. I want to take him to an eye doctor, but I don't want to jump the gun.

 

 

This picture is less than a week old.

I see it. I would take him in. The sooner you treat things like that, the better, right? He is such a handsome boy!

Nicole, what happens if you take the picture from his left? Bring it up to the doc, for sure. When we took S to the optometrist for his cornea, they told us that they do free a eye exam for babies, and that between 8 and 10 months is the best time. So he is probably at a great age for it anyway. Call around to see who works with babies. The ones we took S to work more with babies than anyone else around here.

Ash, she made it to 14 pounds well before a year!  thumb.gif  She must be on the charts easily now.

 

Nicole, wow, does Conner have gorgeous blue eyes!  And, I agree, take him in b/c if it is something the eye could be trained so much easier now than later.  My mother had to wear an eye patch when she was in early elementary school... can you imagine? 

post #829 of 1492

Yes, I can imagine...  I've worn glasses since I was 18mo and also had to wear an eye patch in elementary school.  I've had all of my kids checked out because it's a hereditary thing.  It could totally go either way, some kids' eyes just look sort of crossed because of how their eyes are placed and the skin around the inner part of the eye.  Lots of people were sure that my DS had crossed eyes, but 3 dr's appointments later they assure me that he's fine with 20/20 vision.  On the other side, my eyes were obviously crossed as a baby. 

 

Also to add, wearing a patch didn't help me at all (except to become immune to teasing!). The only thing that's helped over the years is very high quality fish oil (omega fats).  I have a lot better control over my eyes now and my vision has actually gotten better over the years.  I still wear bi-focals and probably always will though. 

 

It's totally worth it to go have him checked out if you're worried.  You will need to go to a dr that specializes in young children, but overall it's a non-invasive test and pretty easy.   The earlier he gets glasses, the better for him.  I ended up walking really late and everyone thinks it's because I couldn't see.

He's got his 9-month check up next month, do you think it'd be okay to wait until then or should I call now?

post #834 of 1492

You're probably going to need to see a optomologist that specializes in children, so you might as well make the appointment now.  Most regular eye dr's don't see babies, so you need the right person.  I doubt waiting a few weeks will matter much though in the span of things.
