Son with Strabismus
My 3-year old son was diagnosed with esotropic strabismus (cross-eye) last week and we now have to decide which treatment option to pursue. It came on suddenly in the past month after a stomach virus. The doctor confirmed that a virus could be a trigger if there's a genetic predisposition. We saw Dr. Oatts at UCSF Mission Bay and have a good feeling about him. But we do want to get a second opinion since the procedures to correct it are invasive. Has anyone in this group gone through something similar with their little one? If so, can you share your experience? Which doctor did you see?Did you have an MRI to rule out any neurological causes? Which procedure did you choose? Did you pursue eye-therapy?
Thanks so much!
