ABBIE SITTING IN HER BUMBO CHAIR WORKING WITH MS. LISA, HER EI THERAPIST. THIS IS THE CLOSEST TO HER EYES I HAVE.
Abbie had her annual opthomology appointment yesterday. This is the 2nd time we have seen the eye Dr. We were pleased last year to know that she had wonderful vision and the eye structure was perfect. 1p36 Deletion Syndrome affects the eyes in many of the kids. The Dr. told us things looked great and we did not have to come back for 1 year. So, this was yesterday. I have never seen any issues that would lead me to believe that Abbie could not see well but, you never know since she can not tell us. When the Dr. came in she remembered Abbie right away. I really like this Dr. alot! She did some tracking things and made some observations and said that she thought Abbie saw great but, she wanted to do a full exaime just to be sure. The nurse dialates her eyes and then the Dr. comes back. She checked Abbie's vision and optic nerve. She was very pleased. She feels like Abbie was blessed to not have any affect of the Syndrome dealing with her eyes. If anything would be from the Syndrome we would already see it. I was very glad to hear this. Abbie does have asigmatism (sp) but, she said it is common for a 2 year old so she is not to worried. If it does cause problems in the future it is from our family history and we will deal with it then. This is wonderful news. Abbie is so comunitive through her eyes. She also learns so much by watching things so we are very blessed to have great vision. By the way, Abbie got her green eye's from her Nana (my mom). Go figure. She is the only other one in the family that got them. We think it is cool!
