53 years too late?

Friday, April 01, 2011

I never liked having my picture taken. I was born with amblyopia. My eye would turn out when I looked at anything close up. When I was 3 years old, I had surgery, I don't remember which eye, because after the surgery both my eyes were bandaged. After the bandages were removed, the Dr. discovered that he adjusted too much. I favor my left eye, but my right eye turns to the right. I've talked to my optometrist and he recommended an eye specialist in Dallas. I go Tuesday to see him and find out if there is anything that he can do. I am both nervous and excited. After 53 years there maybe some hope.

    Pretty much we ahve the same thing wrong with our eyes. I always thought of it as a lazy eye. Have ahd no surgery for it though. but my right eye moves around if i am looking at something close up left eye will focus but right eye wanders around at otyher objects as if i'm looking t something else. It's no big deal I've jsut dealt with it.
