My 6 1/2 year old child was just diagnosed with strabismus,a mild form. He has been seeing double and closing his eyes so he can focus, so i took him in, to get this diagnosis. I am reading so many things on the internet about treatment. Some say surgery is the only option, some say patches or vision therapy is best. They all say the earlier the better with treatment. I am torn- i am not sure what i should do. The risks of surgery sound scary to me, and don't always sound like they work, but i also don't want to waste precious time with therapy if he needs surgery to correct this. I don't want it to get worse, or for him to lose vision while we decide what to do. Has anyone experienced this before with their child? Any advice for me in this area? My doctor seems to think surgery is a practical and easy but when i checked on the internet it does not always sound like the best option. Please help!

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
