Eye Exam

July 22, 2013
Pedia recommended an Optha in Gleneagles for baby's eye exam (recommended for preemies).

Source: FB

It's important to feed baby before the exam because for the next hour he will not be allowed to feed to prevent throwing up.

A solution was applied on his eyes every 15 minutes for an hour to dilate his eyes. Then clips were placed on his eyes so that the doc can examine the retina. Gosh. It's not for the faint heart. Baby will CRY. A lot. And I almost cried with him. :(

Good news is that there's no problem with his retina. He's a little short sighted for his age so we will come back in 6 months time for another eye exam. :(

Total Cost: $162.
