My daughter was born at thirty weeks and had to have some additional eye exams done during infancy, that ended up being fine. Later on, her pediatician thought she was demonstrating symptoms of amblioplia (Lazy eye, essentially) which can be common in preemies. I began noticing it in every picture I had of her, when I never noticed it before. Anyway, she was seen by an opthamologist who found her eyes and vision were perfect, but he continued to monitor her every six months. At one point, it was suggested she may need a patch, or even glasses to correct it, but she is five now and managed to bypass all of that, and is doing just fine.
Hopefully that is somewhat encouraging. Do you know exactly what they are looking for? Good Luck. Keep us posted.
