What is wrong with her eyes, anyway?

As Tori Roloff reminded fans during the last season of LPBW, Lilah has an eye condition called, Strabismus. The eye condition requires special treatment including doing things such as wearing an eye patch over a single eye for a period of time. The purpose of the eye patch is to force Lilah’s other eye to do more work with the hope of becoming stronger. Moreover, as fans know, Lilah has also worn glasses since she was fairly young.

Knowing Lilah has lots of issues with her eyes, fans often wonder about them. Likewise, fans have been told more than once there was a chance Lilah would need surgery.

Zach Roloff shares update on Lilah Roloff’s eyes

In response to Zach’s Instagram post last night, one fan asked if Lilah was getting Strabismus eye surgery. Zach responded to the comment and explained where they were with Lilah’s eyes.

Current plan is too wait till Lilah is talking better and can give us better feedback with the tests they do before moving forward.

According to Zach, they have decided to hold off on doing eye surgery on their daughter. Right now, she’s still working on her communication skills. This can make it difficult for doctors to get clear answers during eye examinations. Zach and Tori have decided they would feel more comfortable moving forward with the surgery if they want until she’s able to better answer the questions during the eye exams.
