We had his appointment today. Jared has convergent strabismus (which is the cross eyes) and amblyopia (which is a lazy eye). His eyes in general are healthy it's just that because the one eye turns in he doesn't use it the same and the brain ignores the improper focused image. So he sees perfectly fine....it's just that he's only using one eye to see it.
We are going to have to put patches on for 2-3 hours every day until the next appointment (which is in about 4 weeks). If anyone has tips on how to keep him from ripping them off I'd love to hear them!
He will also have to have surgery. Which will be discussed more at the next appointment. The surgery is to just straighten out the muscles it won't correct his vision (which is why we have to patch). He may need more than one surgery and it's preferable to have the surgeries done before he's 18 months. So all this will hopefully come up quick and go well.
The Dr said that at this point we don't need to think about glasses.
As a bright side. Jared took ONE step while at the appointment (when we were waiting).
