ashley251471 (528.8 days ago) Because of my son`s brain bleed at birth he had strabismus(crossed eyes) due to the vision part in his brain being damaged not allowing the muscles in his eyes to coordinate together. I know they told us he may need surgery, glasses, or it may never be fixed and he would always have a lazy eye or even both eyes crossed. His specialist always told us that it could also repair itself, and that it was just a waiting game. I know it`s different from your nephews case but it`s my understanding that a child`s eyes have that ability to improve and strengthen themselves in a way that adults can`t. My 4 year old will undergo surgery next year to tighten the eyes muscles.. but his eyes are no longer crossing, and it was amazing to watch them almost repair themselves in the last 3 years. I hope you find the answers you are looking for! God Bless
RobinG (528.9 days ago) (((big hugs))) So sorry to hear this :( I dont know anything about it but would assume like all medical diagnoses that anything is possible but in most cases it will not happen. like a child told they`d never walk and they do, a baby said to not survive but does. I would assume since the experts said it cant fix themselves it is probably true but as you said never underestimate the power of the human body and God and the brain has been known to rework it self in some cases. I think it is probably best to assume it will not but should the blessing be granted and it does, rejoice in the miracle. :) Denial is def a hard thing and hearing your child has a serious medical concern too its sadly expected and part of the grief process. I would just let time heal and in that time I assume he will hear again from the doctors and he will have a clearer understanding. (((big hugs to you and many prayers to your sweet nephew!)))
KR (529.3 days ago) Leah from Teen Mom 2 Is going through the same thing. I dont know anything other than what Ive seen on the show (reality) and what that specialist said. From my understanding their isnt a fix for it, but glasses can help i believe. But no actual cure. In her case the optic nerve is smaller in one eye. She expects at some point the vision will be lost in the eye. I know its silly to compare your life and Teen mom 2. But its the only thing i've heard about this sorry. I wish you guys lucky though!
Blessed x3 (529.4 days ago) Leanna- thanks for the info, unfortunately the specialists already warned us that some sites on the internet will claim you can go to china and have stem cell treatment to correct it. He said it will not work, there is no cure. But my BIL has convinced himself that DOCTORS can`t fix it, but the brain can..... I haven`t found a single instance of this after hours of researching, but don`t want to underestimate God, and the human body. I guess I`m just hoping thay somebody on here knows of something miraculous happening with someone they know
