    I've seen first hand what happens when you wait til they're older - my cousin was 16 as his mum was too scared or afraid to have it done - and it didn't work.

    Everyone I know of that has had it done when younger is perfect! I need glasses while driving or watching a movie - but many other people my age are exactly the same!

    Honestly all I remember is the gunky eyes when waking up in the morning for a couple of days. I thought it was 'cool' though (my siblings thought it was so gross it was 'cool', haha)

    Apparently I weirded out my brother as I started looking at him straight from across the dinner table, he was expecting my eye to wander

    The surgery was a complete success. I'm happy to say her eyes are perfectly straight and she hasn't had to patch since (although it may be on the cards again one day). She still wears glasses and is very far sighted and will most likely be for life but we are totally fine with that.

    Thank you so much for thinking of us
