Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
The second doctor is correct.....there is nothing that can be done for amblyopia after about age seven. Also, in my opinion, there is no need for prisms at this point as I am sure she is not suffering from symptoms of double vision right now.
We have been experiencing problems with the chat system for the last few days. Our engineers are working on it. However, I'll switch over to the Q&A system. This system works a lot like 'text messaging' but an email is sent to each of us anytime something is posted to this thread. We can continue to work on your question there..... :)
Yes i received your postings, sorry I can't be online much... Now i feel bad that i didn't have this problem corrected earlier, she was seen by 2 previous doctors and neither one mentioned this until the recent doctor. None of them are pediatric optholmologists.
What's the long-term effect of this lazy eye, will she lose vision in it? will she be able to focus enough to excel in her classes?
Also the doctor had asked me if I had a cold or the flu while pregnant with her, i only had high fevers but i'm sure i took nothing more than ibuprofren, how was this caused?
