Is your daughter being treated by a pediatric ophthalmologist?

Is this the first time she has had an eye exam?

Does your daughter have any other medical problems or take any medications?

This is not an answer, but an Information Request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. I look forward to helping you.

No just ophthalmologist md it was first official exam by eye dr no other problems no meds
Eye Doctor: Dr. Rick, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

I would consult with a pediatric ophthalmologist to make sure that no stone is left unturned. While it is pretty late for patching, the pediatric eye MD will be able to tell you if it is worth trying at this point...

That being said it is unlikely that her vision will get to 20/20 in the amblyopic eye. Also her stereopsis (depth perception) will never be normal. The good news? This rarely causes any problems (unless she wants to be a Navy Fighter pilot....)

Does this make sense to you?

I am happy to be able to help you today. If you would be so kind, please help me get credit for my efforts in answering your questions and press the excellent feedback button for this encounter. And, don’t forget, I work for tips. I would also be happy to continue to answer any more questions you have until we have resolved your concern.

Will her vision get better in lazy eye at all
Eye Doctor: Dr. Rick, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

It is hard to tell at this point....age 7 is very late to start treatment -- some would say too late, others would say give it a try.

That is why you should consult with the best trained doctor in this area -- and that is a pediatric ophthalmologist.

Make sense?

It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.
