i WENT TO THE DOCTOR TODAY TO GET MY TWO MONTH OLD A WELL CHECK AND HE TESTED HER VISION, AND SAID THAT SHE IS NOT FOLLOWING OBJECTS OR FOCUSING ON HIS FACE. SHE ALSO MAKES RAPID EYE MOVMENTS AND WILL NOT LOOK AT ANY THING. I AM COMPLETLEY DEVESTATED. I AM GOING TO THE OPTHAMOLOGIST TODAY AT 2 TO CONFIRM DIAGNOSIS AND TO GET ANOTHER OPINION. HAS ANY DELT WITH THIS TYPE OF THING BEFORE. IF YOU HAVE PLEASE TELL ME YOUR OUTCOME. THANKS.
It was confirmed by an opthamologist yesterday that my little baby girl can not see. She is partly albino and has no pigment in her eyes. She can only see light and dark. I have been crying now since yesterday. The thought that she will never see my face just kills me.I just wanted her to be able to see the ocean, the mountains, her children when she has them. I know she can see in other ways,but it just dosnt feel the same. We are going to a specialist to see if their is anything we can do. I try not to blame myself but you wonder if its something that I have done to do this to her. Like all the times I went to the hospital for contractions and they shoved terbutaline and pain meds in me over and over. I dont know. I just know that she is a wonderful child and can do anything she puts her mind to.Thanks for all the support if you have any more stories please keep them coming they give me so much hope for her.
