Eye issues

We took Reagan into a neuro-ophthalmologist and she said that Reagan's eyes were healthy, but that she had delayed visual maturation and was extremely farsighted like an infant, although she said that it should improve over time and with seizure control. She gave Reagan some glasses (which she wears infrequently because they don't really seem to help) to try to "jump start" her vision. We later found out that in her records this doctor also diagnosed her with something called CVI (cortical visual impairment), similar to delayed visual maturation, but it basically means that something is being lost in the translation of information between her eyes and brain. She currently receives vision therapy once a week.
