I found out today that my 13 month old daughter has a cataract in one eye. According to the doctor, we will patch the good eye daily, she will wear glasses, and possibly contacts in the future. Surgery will likely be required.

I would love to hear from other moms who have experience with this. I'd appreciate any tips on following through with the treatments, for example how you kept the patch on or how your baby dealt with contact lenses, and hear about your progress/outcome. Thanks in advance for your help!
