My little 3 yr old dd is booked in for strabismus surgery on Tuesday to straighten one of her eyes out. She is long sighted and has worn glasses since she was 1 and patched for almost a year. I am really excited that her eye will finally be straight as she has reached the age where other kids have started asking her about it but I'm also nervous that something might go wrong or the surgery might not work. This is her second eye operation (she had her first at 24 months) so we have been through it before... But she is so little and so brave (she handles glasses and patching like a champ) and I really wish she didn't have to go through it at all..
Plz send positive thoughts our way for a successful outcome and a quick recovery for my baby girl..

I had this when I was four and I am a complete success story. I am so thankful to mum & dad for getting it done early.
Hope everything goes splendidly

Thank you all so much. We just had the pre op appointment and are due to meet the anesthetist Monday arvo. I'm really not the calmest person in these situations and I'm trying so damn hard to be positive and strong for my little cupcake so she doesn't feel frightened going into it but its hard. The nurse said its a really easy straight forward operation and it will only take about 30 mins.
I think I need to get out for a bit when dh gets home from work and have a big stress relieving cry in private somewhere...

Sending lots of good vibes to your baby!!
I was that little kid too, in the playground with a patch over one eye and glasses - so I do feel for her!!
Good luck little one 💖

@MrJones&Me and @ButterflyMa .
So many adults come up to us when we are out and tell us that they had the same thing when they were little. It's so comforting when I see how perfectly straight their eyes are as adults... We put the hard yards in, never missing a day patching and always wearing her glasses so I hope too that she will grow up and have beautiful straight eyes and see well too.
