Meet our Patchers

Meet Sophia ๐Ÿ‘

Meet Sophia ๐Ÿ‘
Sophia is 3 years old and was diagnosed with PHPV (persistent hyperplastic primary vitreous) and Microphthalmia in her right eye. These conditions are a result of the eyes not fully developing during pregnancy and prevent the affected eye(s) from functioning properly, resulting in vision loss ๐Ÿ˜ฎโ€๐Ÿ’จ

Sophia's Ophthalmologist explained that due to the differences between her eyes, when Sophia wears a patch she loses 90% of her sight. Consequently, she only patches for an hour a day, but they are hoping to increase this as her curious eye strengthens. She will also be seeing a retinal surgeon in May to help treat her condition.

Sophia's mum, Michelle, said "Considering we donโ€™t really know how much she can see she is doing really well and have big hopes for the future. We do whatever she wants in that hour, [of patching] lots of cuddles and playing. She likes deciding what pattern she wants to wear and is obsessed with the pink unicorn obviously ๐Ÿ˜ For me all the beautiful pattern helps too and they are soft on her skin ๐Ÿ˜Š"

Keep up the incredible work Sophia โค๏ธ
