I'm sorry if I'm in the wrong place to post this. My daughter will be 3 in December. We noticed from birth that her left eye was a little off sometimes. The family doctor indicated that it was hardly noticeable and had checked them early on and she said it looked fine and would most likely correct itself. Seriously, you barely noticed it. Today my DH was really bothered by it because they were outside playing and he said for the first time he noticed it go waaay off the other one. We covered her right eye and tried to get her to look at several things, name things, point things out - you name it - and she couldn't. When we blocked the left eye, she was fine to name her toys, point things out, follow you across the room. Both pupils react to light. DH is currently at the emergency room in hospital which is where our family doctor told us to go. Of course we've been all over the web and it does indicate that lazy eye can worsen if left untreated. Does anyone have any insight into this or experience? I am just trying to find out as much as I can while DH is in the waiting room where he'll be for a few hrs at best.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts - we're both pretty scared right now.
