We got Cristel to Exilaser where it was determined that fortunately all she needed for her right eye was stronger lenses. (She is s0 sweet....she is shown here applauding when she identified the pictures she was shown>.)
After receiving her new glasses, HKIE got her to our prosthetic specialist, Dra Mariela Siguencia at Hospital del Rio. She informed us that Cristel could indeed use a partial prosthetic eye but that the eye socket had also shrunk so surgery was needed to increase the socket size to match her other eye.
Las week Dr. Pablo Salamea Molina and Dra. Siguencia operated on Cristel's eye and put in a temporary prosthetic. In 3 weeks she will receive a more permanent one and later she will receive a final prosthetic. This little girl will be a real cutie after this!
Her mother and grandmother are so very very grateful to HKIE, the donors and all the doctors who are providing such wonderful care to their precious little one.
