(The photo above is after her eyes were dilated)
The doctor came in and dilated her eyes. He held up a black and white spinning drum, one of the oldest optometry tests in the book, and she passed! I watcher her pass. I was so proud of my little girl. He checked for a lazy eye and there was not one, they were both working well. He did a few other tests, talked about why here eyes appear to cross but are not really crossing. This was a very informative appointment. He shakes my hand and says, “You got a good one, these are the best Down Syndrome eyes I have seen.”
All the nurses came and oooed and awwed over her. I smiled and stepped back and for the first time in our lives, did not crawl into a hole. This was our daughter and she just passed her eye exam.
