Day 59 - Can Anyone Else See This??



Just recently I've started noticing what looks like a turn in Audrey's right eye. Am I imagining it or can you guys see it too??

Do we need to see an eye doctor for this or is the optometrist a good enough place to start?

Please tell me your eye experiences. You'd think I'd know about this by now seeing as Ashlea is visually impaired but this is something we've never dealt with!

I thought there was something wrong with our daughters eyes, took her to an optometrist and an eye doctor, but it turned out to be her head not her eyes that was slightly out. (she looks okay now, several years later). They way they can tell, and you can check this yourself, is when you look in her eyes, is the white reflection (like you see in photos) appearing in the same spot on both eyes.

I can't see it (had a look at the previous pic you posted of Audrey too) but maybe you can notice it in real life more.

I would get it checked out for sure if you have noticed.

Optometrist husband says to get it checked out. You can go to an optometrist (preferably a decent pediatric one if you've had experience with one). He said that because she has a really broad bridge on her nose, they'll need to get her really straight to observe properly. I got him to look at some of her other photos and he said that it definitely looks like there could be an issue.

Thanks Naomi - definitely going to get it checked.

Totally check it out. I don 't see anything but there was a case when a woman in uk saw something in her penpal's friends baby's eye and saved her life by telling her to go check it out! How incredible! This is the article if you want to read. I dont mean to scare you but just to show that there are certain things that can be diagnosed via eye and so you know what questions to ask because I know you like to be informed before you go in

We had a similar thing with our daughter when she was a bit younger. Had it check by our paed. and it turned out it was a kind of "optical illusion" caused by the fact that she had a very wide bridge of her nose. So it made it appear as though she had a lazy eye (just ever so slightly - sometimes we thought we could see it and sometimes not) but both eyes were really functioning fine. Now that she's grown into her face a bit more (if that makes sense) I don't see it any more. However, all that said, it's always nice to hear a professional say that to you so I would probably take her for a quick eye-check at the local optom.

There does seem to be a turn, best to see the opthamologist at the Children's Hospital.

Deana had squint surgery in 09, it worked pretty well.
