Again, echoing what Liz said. It is SO tempting to do the double vision asap, cause it is hellish to have, but waiting until “your eyes stop changing” is the thing to do. I remember,vividly, wondering,
“how in the hell will I KNOW when my eyes stop changing!!??” Wish I had a good answer for that.
I do know that strabismus surgery should come after OD, after all the healing has occurred, if you have an orbital decompression.
And of course since eyes are constantly changing I ended up being the parent of multiple pairs of glasses with new prescriptions…..
BUT you will get to the end of all all of this. REALLY. I thought it would never end.
Now, vision is fine with correction with prisms, and I MUST have eye drops with me at all times, and sun glasses everywhere. Very photophobic. Good thing I live in SEattle!
