We got there and were taken back pretty quickly. Ellie was not feeling well (and had thrown up 5 times the night before) but she was a good sport as long as she was on daddy's shoulder or sitting in Lynlee's stroller.
The ophthalmologist measured Lynlee for a while and said that she measured normal, just a little far-sighted (which is normal for babies). But he could see without his instruments what was making us nervous (her right eye seems to look towards the center more than her left eye). So he put dilating drops in her eyes and sent us back to the waiting room to wait for 25 minutes for the drops to take effect.
When he remeasured Lynlee, he said that there was a slight variance, but still not enough to make him nervous. He said her eyelids are different in their folds, and that makes it look like her eyes are off. But, he wants to see us again in 3 months (after the helmet is off) to remeasure and make sure her far-sightedness is still in the normal range. If we need treatment then, Lynlee will get glasses. I am glad it was such good news!
