Ophthomology Appointment

Jeremy took Evan to go see his ophthalmologist, Dr. Epley, this morning. Dr. Epley has seen Evan since he was a tiny preemie in the NICU. He agreed with Dr. Preston's findings that Evan does have significant astigmatism in the left eye, and that eye is turning outward pretty much all the time. He also agreed that most likely Evan will need surgery to repair the turn, but he would like to get 3-4 consistant measurements of the magnitude of the turn before surgery. So he has one from today, one from Dr. Preston's exam in June, and will see him again in 6 weeks. Dr. Preston will see him again in September. We will continue with the patching and glasses (when they come in). The very good news is that Dr. Epley does have surgery time scheduled in Children's ER, so we have a good chance of being able to coordinate some other procedures (less anesthesia--yeah!)
