my son is 8 months old- same thing can only see close to his face.  so far they have told me thay he does NOT have septo optoc displaysia- and the doctors give me no answers.  i'm traveling to Boston Childrens hospitol to meet with a specialist, its so hard dealing with this and not getting any answers.  i want to know if they can do an optic nerve transplant.  i'd love to learn more about your daughter and be of sopport to you.
