Little man L had his follow up appointment with the eye specialist today. If you do not have the background about his eye problems, go have a look here.
At our last appointment we were warned that an operation is more possible than not and that his eye, due to the blind spot, is turning inwards which will effect the spectrum of his vision. Therefore we had to go back today, after 3 months, and not after 6 months as per usual. Although there was a slight change in his lens prescription I was very anxious and almost sure that we would get the go ahead for the operation today. It turns out that from a 20 degree fall out has corrected to 12 degrees - a huge improvement, but not quite enough. It has to be 10 and below to be in the "no operation needed" spectrum. So we have drops to add now to the "good eye" once again - rending it useless for 48 hours, in order to stimulate the "bad" eye to work harder in order to correct the angle.
So we are seeing him again in 2 months time to assess the progress. Here's praying for that extra 2%. We have come so far, from not using this eye at all to making the most of it.
