Default newbie: 6mth DD with eyelid hemag

Hi folks! I am so glad I found this website. My 6 month old daughter was diagnosed with a capillary hemangioma on her right eyelid. The derm wasn't took concerned since it is small and started her on the beta blocker gel and referred us to the eye dr to check to make sure her vision wasn't being effected. Eye dr is very concerned. Both eyes have astimg, with the right eye (with Hem) being much more severe. They don't think the gel will work/ need it to work faster so they are advising to start the oral propranolol. She will also need to wear an eye patch an hour a day to hopefully strengthen the weaker eye. I'd love any advice you could provide. Thank you!
