Just wondering if anyone has had experience with strabismus in one or both eyes? My daughter has been diagnosed by our paediatric ophthalmologist with strabismus in both eyes and he wants to operate on both at once in a few weeks. I guess I'm just extremely nervous as this is the first time any of my children have had to have surgery. I would love to hear from other parents that might have gone through this. TIA

She's 3 yrs and been in glasses and patching since she was one. She recently had strabismus surgery (both eyes) which was successful. You can pm me and I'll send you pictures and give you a run down of dd's surgery.

Wow she looks so cute even before her surgery but after so straight and beautiful :-)
So she didn't complain about any soreness or anything?

The day of the surgery was a bit rough. She came out of the anaesthetic a bit groggy and disorientated and took the morphine a bit bad and had a little vomit while we were in the recovery room but she was fine about 3 hours later and we took her home and she just laid on the couch and watched movies and slept and had lots of panadol. The next day she was up and her normal self and didn't even complain of being in pain although her eyes were really red and looked far worse.... it didn't bother her though. Putting the drops in sucked for all of us but is really important. All up we couldn't be more thrilled with the outcome although I have heard that in some cases more surgeries are needed if they don't correct enough or over correct the eyes.. but lucky for us that hasn't happened.
How old is your little one?
