Maggie's ROP has been followed very closely by a pediatric opthamologist. She had her last follow-up in June, and thank goodness, everything has cleared up on it's own, much as predicted. Like Hunter, though, she is far-sighted. Our doctor is not too worried about it at this point, and we are following up in December to see if it improves itself as she grows (like Erin said).
Both DH and I have HORRIBLE vision (sadly, we are both legally blind [:0], and both near-sighted), so, like Kara mentioned, it's impossible to know if it's the prematurity or genetics, or a little of both. No matter what, she will have to have glasses at some point down the road, but thank goodness it's a result of two blind nerds breeding, and not another side effect of her prematurity. [8D]
