Since the babies were born, they had to see an eye doctor when they were released from the hospital. They want to see preemies or preemies that have been on oxygen because there is a higher risk for eye development problems since they did not get a chance to fully develop. There are risks for crossed-eyes and lazy eyes and chance for glasses at an early age.
Brittany and Ashton had their first appointment before Caitlyn came home since they were released before she was. It wasn't a pleasant process. We were not aloud in the room when they did their exams because of what they had to do since the babies couldn't focus or move their eyes around yet. They would have little broken blood vessels in their eyes because of the process. But we were told that would happen. Caitlyn was seen a few weeks after. Everything looked good, so they didn't have to come back for another 6 months.
Ashton and Brittany went back a month ago and they had a great report!! Everything was developed the way it was suppose to. Caitlyn had her appointment today and she got the same report. So now they don't have to go back for another 2 years!! That was great news for us!
