She had Lazy eye and she passed it along to my mother, Laura Winnifred and she had surgery as a child to correct it. My mom always wore glasess. The eye condition usually skips a generation or two and one of her great grandchildren had it also. It was diagnosed early and she was wearing glasses at an early age. You can see the condition in the picture that I have posted here.
