Eye Doctor

Caysen had an eye exam last week.  He has to go every 6 months because it's only a matter of time before he'll need glasses due to near-sightedness.  At our last visit, the dr. was a little concerned about his eyes turning inward, but she felt like it would get better in time.  Well, this time she felt like it was actually worse (especially his right eye), so we have been referred to a pediatric opthamologist a few hours away.

Caysen's regular eye dr. thinks it's very possible he will need surgery, but she said the opthamologist may choose to try a less aggressive approach first, like glasses.  We have an appointment set for May 15th, so we'll find out then if he's going to need surgery, glasses, or another treatment.  We're really hoping that it can be corrected without surgery, but of course, whatever is best for Caysen is what we will do.

If you think about it, please say a little prayer that we'll get good news when we go for our consultation.  It would be very much appreciated.  Thanks!

Leslie, our daughter had double eye surgery for strabismus at 15 mos. She did great......we were a wreck. Her eyes were very bad, but the surgery made them straight. Unfortunately, one eye is turning in a little now (she's almost 6) but with patching and glasses, it has stabilized.

We are praying that you have a good consultation, but don't fret too much, Caysen is a real trooper - He'll be fine. Besides, he has a whole army of angels watching over him.

We will surely pray for little Caysen, and for good results.
