My 3 1/2 year old son recently got diagnosed with multiple eye disorders. I had noticed that his right eye had started to turn & when I took him to the ophthalmologist they diagnosed him with strabismus & amblyopia. He also has v pattern esotropia & an overacting superior oblique muscle.we began with patching & the next step is surgery. I am terrified of this & just heartbroken all thus has happened. His eyes at his 3 yr eye checkup were perfectly aligned & 20/20 vision. Anyone with any information about having surgery for any of the disorders above & their satisfaction with the surgery would be appreciated. Thank you!!
