Is your childs VI condition a hereditary thing? Is it something they can pass on to their kids?

Nathan's isn't hereditary at all, it is a direct result of him being premature. ROP- Retinopathy of Prematurity. He goes every 6 weeks for a check up because he still runs the risk of the blood vessels developing abnormally as he grows and it could detach the retina and cause blindness.

Alexis' isn't hereditary either. The SOD is caused by a mutation that occurs around 6 weeks gestation. But fortunately, its not something that she can pass on to her kids.

Joel amblyopia is genetic... it runs in my family. My grandmother and two of my aunts (mothers side) had/have the same issue although no relatives is my generation have it. Given all the eye issues in both DH and my families, its a wonder either of my children can see! LOL We have blindness from retinal issues, cateracts, cornea disorders and a genetic abnormality (mom and dad were carriers with a small chance at passing it on, they did but that child has no children and won't.). All don't appear to have been passed on. Ug!

Kodys nearsightedness is inherited from all sides of his family. But we dont know where he got his lazy eye from.

I believe my childrens is hereditary, because their father had them as a child also, and he had cousins with them, and I also just found out that my neice ( on his side) got glasses. (although she was very premature also, so who knows if her's was hereditary)
