When Samuel went for his 9 month checkup, a month ago, the pediatrician recommended seeing an eye doctor to check out a potential lazy eye. Our appointment was at 7:45 this morning. We had to get up an extra hour early, as the doctor was all the way across town. Anyway, Samuel did not like having his eyes dilated, as the drops sting, but overall he did very well.
The doctor said his eyes look great and...GREAT NEWS...NO LAZY EYE. It's just the extra tissue next to the eye, that is very common with babies, that gives the allusion of a lazy eye and as his head grows that will disappear.
