Hi. My name is***** and I am online and available to help you today. Thank you for your patience. Thank you for requesting me.
Question and answer is just one of the services I offer. I can also provide you with additional services, such as live telephone consultation, at a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested.
It is hard to say what is going on with your daughters eye from what you have posted. It is unlikely that, this long after her eye muscle surgery, that she would be having a serious complication like a retinal detachment...but...
As a father of five I think we have to believe that your daughter is experiencing something "different" in her vision. Could it be blood inside her eyeball? Perhaps.
In any event the best thing to do at this point is to take her in to her pediatric ophthalmologist for a complete, dilated, eye exam.
If she were one of my daughters that is what I would do....
Does this make sense to you?
