Visits to the Pediatric Ophthalmologist-Dr. Trudi Grin-

1 month old- low pigment in eyes, nystagmus, strabismus, and photophobia. I’m told her vision will likely be anywhere from 20/60 to 20/2200 corrected.

3 months old- doctor still seeing the nystagmus and strabismus in both eyes, now seeing a little bit of farsightedness, but not enough for glasses. We are told that eventually Lyra will need strabismus surgery.

6 months old- At home we were seeing Lyra’s right eye turning in more. Dr. prescribes patching the left eye, 1 hr a day, everyday.

7 months- We call the doctor to tell her we are now seeing both eyes turning in equally. Dr. prescribes patching each eye, alternating every other day, for an hour.

8 months old- Strabismus surgery is scheduled for February 27th. Lyra does not need glasses for farsightedness yet, but doctor says she will prescribe tinted glasses for the photophobia in the spring.
