Dannielynn Birkhead's Strabismus

I just heard about Dannielynn Birkhead's diagnosis of Strabismus and I am very glad that they caught it at such an early age. I hope that Larry (her father) does everything that he needs to do to get her to patch. I'm sure that she has a very good eye doctor. This might really bring awareness for other parents who have children with vision problems to not feel so isolated. I hope she makes a complete recovery. Good luck Dannielynn!

Greetings!
I came across this blog in a very odd coincidence!
I have a 7 (will be 8 on 2/28) yr old daughter who has had strabismus since age 1. We have patched with no luck and so we ended up with drops. She has had 3 surgeries in all. The last one, Summer of '07 seems to have taken the best. It will be a lifelong fight. The first surgery caused her eyes to "flip flop", in other words we fixed her bad eye and since they weakened the good eye with patches, drops, etc, it caused her good eye to go bad. They say that is very rare but it happened to her!
Its nice to know we aren't so alone in the world, though I wish this on nobody.
Blessings
