How Are Her Eyes?

Vera saw her Eye Doctor today. Her corneas have been cloudy since birth, but have been gradually clearing. The good news is, the clear portions are much clearer now. However, the thick, cloudy portions aren't really clearing, or very slowly.

That means she probably can see partially, but not with the clarity that we enjoy. I guess it's more of blurry shapes, outlines and movement for now.

Aside from her feeding issue, having her vision improve is the main thing for Vera. If only she can see! I believe she would be more easily entertained, and less easily insecure.

Having said that, it's a blessing that she can hear. With our voice and our touch, we still can cheer her up, calm her down and reach out to her. In my eyes, that's good enough for now.
