Wandering, or "lazy," eye healed
Originally appeared on spirituality.com
When my son was about four or five, we began to notice he seemed to have a wandering, or “lazy,” eye. My husband and I prayed about the situation right away, and because we had had some marvelous healings ourselves, we felt confident that healing would come. Then his teachers noticed the condition and told me I should take him to a doctor to have the condition taken care of. I acted on the teachers’ request and made an appointment with an eye specialist.
After the examination the doctor gave me three choices: our son could do eye exercises, wear an eye patch, or have an eye operation—or perhaps some combination of these possibilities. At that point I felt that the best solution would be to obtain treatment for my son from a Christian Science practitioner. A practitioner is someone who devotes his or her full time to spiritual healing, and I felt someone with this kind of professional experience would be able to help us break through whatever it was that seemed to be impeding the healing.
