Yes - I think it is amazing how little doctors know about them. Most doctors have told us to wait and see and one pediatric opthamogosist even went so far as to tell me that I was "too worried" about my daugther and she would never have vision problems. A week later, I took Sophia to another doctor for a second opinion and sure enough, she has astigmatism which was pretty obvious since she could hardly open her eyelid!!!
I agree that so much more needs to be done to educate the doctors. If I would have taken our pedatrian's advice, we would be in big trouble now!!!
