Amblyopia: The Hidden Eye Problem

My post about J’s eye issues is up today on Preemie Babies 101. Bottom line: Please have your kids’ eyes checked! J was cleared in the NICU for any preemie-related vision issues, and as many as 20% of children have some form of J’s eye condition. It is reversible at his age, but the older a child gets, the less treatable the condition is. It can eventually cause blindness in one eye. For more information, head over to Preemie Babies 101.
