So, today we went back to the eye doctor and he has now recommended patching Lilah's good eye. So far she doesn't seem to mind and does seem to be able to see and do things as usual. She needs to wear a patch ALL DAY except for ONE HOUR! He performed a little test (saying that this doesn't usually work for children under 4 years), where he held up a letter chart and gave Lilah a letter chart. He pointed to a letter and asked her to point to the same letter on her chart. With her good eye she got every match correct! With her bad eye, she only got one right. But he was definitely impressed by how smart she is!
Six weeks of patching to go... then we will see what comes next or if it even helped.
