Ashlyn Eye Improvement!!

We had our first follow up with the eye doctor today. After six weeks of patching six hours a day Ashlyn's vision went from 20/70 to 20/40. Madison started at 4 years old and went from 20/200 to 20/70 in six months. After four years she was able to get to 20/40. All of these numbers are WITH GLASSES ON.

Patching is such a wonderful, difficult blessing. Kids hate it. Parents hate it. But the benefits are so evident. I'm so thankful for the eye tumor scare at the pediatrian visit four and a half years ago that put us in the right office to get Madison so real help all those years ago. No tumor was found but we never would have known what could have been because the doctor we had been seeing didn't believe in patching at all.

Ashlyn will check in again in six more weeks and then we go from there. I have high hopes for her and love this doctor. Ashlyn is quite pleased that he recommends 30 min to an hour of her patching time to be with close work helping solidify the link between eye and hand. Ipad was top of his list. No complaints from her on that persecription.
