She first met with the Orthoptist to asses her vision in her right eye.
The past month she has been in agony with her Microphthalmic eye to point she also wakes in the night and she is screaming in pain. So I have been giving her a break from her Scleral Shell which even though she doesn't wear this during the night, thought she might just need the break. It is very unsual for Violet not to be able to tolerate it as she has been wearing since she was 4 months old.
Her Opthamologist checked the pressure in both her eyes today which was not at all a pleasant experience but pressure was normal.
She had the lovely eye drops to dilate and check her eyes thoroughly and she of course had me holding her down with all my strength while she tried to fight me and screamed the place down.
Once again another not so proud moment of feeling "why am I having to do this, I am so very sick of putting you through procedures and not being able to reason with you as to why I am doing this and the fact that it is to hopefully help your management!"
After the drops took effect, she was assessed and given the all clear for not needing glasses for now. They are obviously keen to monitor the need for them though as she gets older.
As for her Micro eye they would like me to try lubricating eye drops 4 x per day and see how that goes, she will be reviewed in 3 months and if no improvement she will need to start on some Steroid eye drops and hope that helps.
Failing that they said as blind eyes can cause huge amounts of pain as the years go on, if the drops don't work and she is still suffering, they will look at removing her Micro eye, which is something I would like to AVOID as her Ocularist has always said to me to try and keep it as long as she can. So, here's hoping 1 of these 2 eye drops work.
While we were at the Kids Hospital, I put in her paperwork for her Leg MRI, which they will call about with a date. She also had her hip and leg x-rays while we were there.
