Back from the Eye Doctor…

Posted by mymaysa on August 4, 2011

I haven’t posted in a long time and I need to upload a few pictures of Maysa now who just turned 3.5, but for now, I’ll just give an update on our visit to the eye doctor today.

It was short and sweet.  Maysa’s vision is still great and while she still exhibits signs of exotropia, she seems to be more aware of it and as a result, seems to think about it first.  I cannot say that it has gotten worse at all.  In fact, it seems to be a tiny bit better.  Again, I am not sure if it is because we fuss at her each time she does it and therefore tries to not do it or if it is because it is getting better on its own.  We go back in 6 months.

I do want to add though that her eye doctor said that a lot of the kids he sees have a history of skull deformation and that it is very possible that Maysa’s exotropia is related to her plagio, though he cannot confirm without looking at the results of CT scan.  I told him that I was a bit concerned about a vertical ridge down Maysa’s forehead that wasn’t there at graduation but that is now a bit prominent.  He wrote a note to her ped…

I’ll write more about what I think that prominent metopic suture is when I can post some pictures of her now.
