We took Gaby to the eye doctor yesterday afternoon, and we find out something that I guess every mom wish never find out about one of her kids: Gaby cant see correctly from the right eye. She was diagnosed with Accommodative Esotropia due to Amblyopia.

The eye doctor thinks it could be hereditary because I have eye problems myself, and also because of her premature condition when she was born. She told me that 5 or 6 years of age was the average age to develop this (or at least to show it).

She prescribed her to use an eye patch for 5 straight hours during the day (if is in school hours better), and to rest during the weekend. The patch should be used in the "good eye" so the "weak eye" does an effort to see straight (hope my explanation makes sense). She also told us that the American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus just found out 18 months ago, that there is a relation between Amblyopia and intoeing, so she thinks her walking will improve a lot once she start the eye treatment.

She also sent her for a Cyclopegic Refraction Test, and even though I have the machine's print out on hand to handed in to the eye doctor, I have no idea what all those numbers means! I promise I will update Monday or Tuesday when I hear from the doctor.
