What began as a written documentary of a young family's journey in learning about and overcoming the obstacles of an eye muscle condition in their first born child is now being read by many across the country as a story of inspiration, hope, and faith.

PR9.NET July 23, 2008 - Midland, TX - Johnny Vargas and wife Erika Vargas have released a full-color photo e-book titled "Our Journey with Strabismus" (available at: www.ChildhoodStrabismus.com ) as a written documentary of their family's fight against strabismus. Often confused with amblyopia and mistakenly called "lazy eye," this condition of crossed eyes or "squint" is correctly termed strabismus and has no cure. Often treated by eye surgery on the muscles surrounding the eyes to mechanically address the symptoms of misaligned eyes, the outcome is never certain.

Over the course of 4 years, this family's child underwent 4 surgeries and multiple other treatments including eye patch therapy to overcome the symptoms of this condition. Along the journey however, the parents learned that the physical aspect of being cross eyed was simply the beginning of a long journey of emotional, psychological, and sociological affects on their child, their family, and even their marriage.

In a story of one ophthalmologist (eye doctor) after another, various treatments, eye patch therapy, improperly prescribed eye glasses, repeat eye surgery, financial trauma, marital problems, and uncertain situations, Johnny and Erika originally documented their story to share with other parents whose children also suffer from eye problems. "Our Journey with Strabismus" was initially only read by families in similar situations however this story is now being read by others as a story of inspiration, hope, and faith.

"At the birth of our first born child we were greeted with the smile of a beautiful baby boy. After a few months we soon noticed that our child was cross eyed. Initially we incorrectly called it lazy eye, but this began a journey rooted in eye problems that has forever changed our lives. Much more than consulting with eye doctor after eye doctor (ophthalmologist), eye surgery (actually eye muscle surgery), eye patch therapy, and various alternative therapies, this journey was about personal and family growth. Our son's attitude, confidence, and perseverance led us through this journey both physically and emotionally. Many people have childhood heroes. For many that have read our book, our child is their hero. Our son has unknowingly positively affected many lives around the world. Today he is healthy and has well aligned eyes with no signs of strabismus or amblyopia."

Whether you and your family are facing a situation dealing with eye problems, going through uncertain times, or if you simply enjoy reading inspirational stories, you will enjoy and learn from this family's journey with strabismus. You may even find it to be one of the top inspirational stories of our time.

Strabismus affects up to 5% of children and is often overlooked in early childhood. If you suspect your child might have amblyopia "lazy eye" or strabismus "squint", you should seek the advice of your ophthalmologist (eye doctor) as soon as possible. If treated early, both of these conditions can have favorable outcomes. If left untreated, loss of binocular vision or even blindness could occur.
