I SEE You!

Becca had her yearly visit with Dr. Morrison, her ophthalmologist.  Yes, there is one specialist that we only see once a year!  It was a good appointment.  Because of her septo-optic dysplasia, he always wants to get a good look at her optic nerves.  Becca was exceedingly cooperative (probably because we made the whole exam a game of "I see you!"), and her optic nerves look great - regular size and everything!  She is a little nearsighted and has some astigmatism, but they balance each other out so she doesn't need glasses right now.  He did say that "she's a kid who WILL need glasses; it's a question of when, not if," but since SuperDad and I both have/had glasses, that's no big surprise.  It sounds like she may get them on the early side (between ages 5 and 8) because of her prematurity, but that's no problem!  Still, I am quite glad not to be wrangling glasses on a 2.5 year old.  I'm sure by 3.5 (our next appointment) she'll be completely mature enough to handle them.  Today she had trouble even keeping on the sunglasses they gave her post-pupil dilation.  She did, however, hold on to her lollipop.  :)

  1. Hooray for yearly follow-ups! Vince's eye appointment is in February. Hope it goes as well as Becca's.
