| | HELP!!!Possible strabismus in 1 year old
Hi my son just turned 16 months and around 12 months. we were out and a lady asked me if my son had a strabismus and I of course said No and had no idea what she was talking about...Well over the next week or so, I looked it up and started researching and watching him and noticed his right eye seemed abit lazy..As the past few months have gone on I have noticed it now rolls in towards his nose alot...Especially when playing or looking at something up close...My husband just started a new job and so for this reason only, We are waiting for the insurance to kick in, But I am pretty sure that he has this and am wondering if I Should just skip taking him to his Peditrician (would be a new one-Since his Pedi closed her practice 3 months ago) or go to a specialist straight away? Any advice anyone has would be greatly appreciated! I read online they patch young kids and I wonder how this can work since they would just pull it off (at least mine would) I dont know what I need to do and am concerend about him! Does anyone out there know if they have support groups for these kids, So they can be around and see other kids like them, So they dont feel diffrent! I am in the Austin Tx area if you know of any! Okay Thanks for Listening and any advice!
