On Instagram, Little People, Big World star Tori Roloff has shared lots of photos of her kids, Jackson and Lilah, recently. One of her snaps is a little bit concerning though. Lilah is wearing an eye patch in one of the photos. What’s going on with the one-year-old, and will she be okay?
Tori Roloff explains why Lilah wears an eye patch
In a new snap on her Instagram stories, Tori shared a clip of Lilah using a walker to support her as she practices walking outside. The little girl is barefoot as she cruises around. As we reported, Lilah is “so close” to walking on her own. Tori has shared several photos of her daughter learning how to walk.
Noticeably, in the most recent photo, Lilah is wearing an eye patch. While fans appreciate all of the updates Tori shares and think that the kids are cute, the new photo of Lilah naturally worries fans. They want to make sure she’s okay.
In her post, Tori writes, “Her eye patch is to help her strabismus. Don’t worry. She doesn’t have a boo boo!”
What is strabismus?
Strabismus is another word for crossed eyes. This occurs when the eyes aren’t properly aligned. According to WebMD, “That means they don’t work together to look at an object. One may look in or out, or turn up or down.”
So, Lilah is wearing a patch to help her eyes align so she can correctly. It’s important to receive treatment for strabismus right away, so the family has started early to hopefully correct the issue. The patch isn’t the first step for them.
Back in October, Lilah got glasses, and Tori began talking about her diagnosis. In an Instagram post, Tori wrote, “Sweet girl has what’s called strabismus. Basically she’s crossed eyed. 🤗 She’s had it since birth and we’ve always joked that she’s our crossed eyed beauty queen 👑! Turns out… it’s a legit thing. Lilah’s vision is actually better than 20/20 (not sure how they can tell on an infant?!) but we’re trying glasses to hopefully fix her lazy eye and avoid surgery!!”
So, are you glad to hear that Lilah Roloff is okay after Tori’s latest update? Do you hope to see more updates as Lilah gets older? Let us know in the comments below.
