We went to the new specialist yesterday. I liked this new pediatric eye doctor much better. This lady was very good with her and explained what she was doing. She did a much better comprehensive eye exam as well.
She explained that right now Julianne can see 1 INCH in front of her clearly. Anything beyond that is quite blurry. She has some scarring that could mean she was a preemie as well. She does NOT think that Julianne needs the eye surgery that the other doctor wanted to do to allign her eyes right now. She thinks that the crossing is because of the severity of her vision problems. She gave us a new prescription for glasses along with the info for the type of frames that would probably work best for her. It was the type of frames I had researched and was hoping for, which made me feel good about her as well. She also decided that we need to work towards her full prescription, but that giving her a full strength prescription for glasses now would probably just scare her.
We went today to the eye doctor's office that we use for the rest of us. They are ordering the frames for us now and we can't wait to get her all fixed up. I'm praying hard that she will wear these easier. :)
Julianne is amazing anyway. I can only imagine how amazing she will be once she can see! She'll probably get into even more (if that is possible lol) and learn a lot more as well.
She will look so good in glasses that everyone will want them. :)
