Today, I took my daughter back to the ophthalmologist to see how much patching her eye for four hours a day has helped her amblyopia. He said we have been doing an excellent job, and her eye has improved. We can move down to patching her eye just two hours a day. Yeah! We go back for another check up on Halloween.
Our main battle won’t be getting her to continue wearing the patch, it will be getting her to wear her glasses. Every time I turn around she has taken them off. She especially hates wearing them with the patch. Hopefully with school starting we can get her use to wearing them all the time – or at least more often.
