I have a couple of questions from readers today. As always, if you have a question you’d like me to post to the blog, please just send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or leave a comment. -Ann Z
Dawn sent me a question wondering how many children with vision problems have other issues as well. Her daughter Jillian has a benign heart murmur, and screened positive for Trisomy 13 before she was born, but they have since been told that she is “normal.” I know that some medical issues are associated with a higher rate of vision problems: for instance, autism, down syndrome, and hearing loss. Has anyone here had their children tested and/or diagnosed for other issues that might be related to their vision problems?
