Last year a babysitter suspected that our DD might have a lazy eye. I made an appointment with a pediatric opthomologist and then DH got seriously ill with a staph infection and had to be hospitalized on and off for almost 3 months. DD's appointment was canceled. I never rescheduled because I never saw signs of the lazy eye. Until last week. She was looking over my shoulder at something on the wall. One eye was looking at the object the other eye moved towards her nose. Needless to say I made her another appointment and we are going this Thursday. DD is non-verbal and will not follow directions (eye chart) so I am unsure how the doctor is going to examine her eyes. The paperwork states to allow at least 3 hours for the appointment and that her eyes will be diated for an examination. This is going to be a nightmare. Does anyone have experience with eye exams and/or lazy eye and autism? DD is 4 years old.
