This community is amazing and has a wealth of experience between all of us. So “Ask Little Four Eyes” is your chance to ask the full community. If you have a children’s glasses or vision-related question, submit it here and I’ll post it to the blog as well as the facebook page and group. I’ll collect the responses and update the post with those responses. – Ann Z.
My son Max had surgery at the end of May for esotropia. We were told we would find out if the surgery worked in 3 months. Why such a long wait? If we see his eye still go in slightly does it mean it didn’t work?
I’ll note that this is a perfect question to ask your child’s eye care provider, as they’ll know the most about your child’s case. But, if others would like to share stories of their child’s recovery and when they knew whether or not it was successful, that would be great. In Zoe’s case, she had a follow-up appointment 8 weeks after her surgery, and she did have a prescription change. Before her follow-up, her eyes started moving apart. Her new prescription was lowered and her eyes were once again straight.
