Last week I took Alana to the Pedi because she was complaining about her eye. She has complained off & on about her eyes for over a year now. We've tried allergy drops and lubricating drops but neither helped. Last Tuesday I noticed her eyelid was a bit swollen and she said her vision in that eye was blurry. Her Pedi wasn't in Wednesday afternoon so we saw another doctor in the practice. He said she could possibly have iritis and was concerned about her vision loss. She was 20/25 in the right eye, 20/40 in the left (the one that was bothering her). At her last check-up she was 20/25 in both eyes. So, he referred her to an ophthalmologist and we see him tomorrow. I know next to nothing about vision tests, but 20/40 doesn't sound so bad.....right?
Anyone have any idea what we can expect at this appointment? I'd like to prepare her the best I can but I've only had 1 eye exam and it went horribly (they did something screwy with the drops and my eyes stayed dilated for 3 days!!).
