I tried to get Wade to tell me how much difference he saw in Teague’s eyes. I couldn’t get a good answer from him. We knew the goal was to raise the eyelid 1-2 mm above the pupil but that didn’t give me a good visual. When I finally compared before and after pictures I was amazed. You can see his beautiful eyes!
Teague also had a follow up with Dr. Hunter, his ophthalmologist. We had been concerned that Teague’s left eye sometimes appears to “drift” and his right appears more turned towards his nose. Dr. Hunter explained that in Asian children you rarely see white between the eye and the nose until they are older and their nasal passages thin. What we were noticing was actually the left eye too far outwards. Dr. Hunter is suggesting a second eye surgery but seems confident he can move the left eye into the proper place. Sadly Teague will need to continue wearing his eye patch one hour a day until then. Due to our move and the baby, we are assuming we won’t be able to schedule the surgery before this fall, but we definitely hope to have it done this year.
