Sara had her annual eye exam yesterday (and so did I). Sara has to have one because of her NF, and I do just cause I'm old and blind.
Sara did great! When the tech said she was going to get the eye chart with the pictures instead of letters, Sara said she wanted to read the letters instead "just like mommy." And she did wonderful, reading all the letters she was asked to. And of course, she has perfect vision! We did have to hold her down to get the drops in her eyes for the dilation, but then when she got to sit in front of the machine to take pictures of her eyes she was pretty excited. She really liked that she got to see what the inside of her eyes looked like. And I'm happy to report, there is no indications that the NF is causing any issues with her eyes. They're in perfect health!
Now my eyes are another story. My vision is awful, as it has been for years, but isn't any worse than last year. Yea! But my left retina is still showing a slight deformation. It isn't impacting my vision, and we've been watching it for about 2 years now. It wasn't any worse this time than last year, so that's good. It could cause serious problems with my vision if it decides to get worse, so let us hope that doesn't happen. For now, we just watch it and make me take an extra test each year to make sure that I'm not losing my peripheral vision.
So there you have it! One more appointment off the list until next year!
