OutDaughtered fans who have followed the Busbys from the beginning know that Hazel Busby has an eye condition. Hazel has nystagmus.
Ultimately, nystagmus causes her eyes to move involuntarily. Hazel Busby went to the eye doctor for the first time since COVID. While her parents were worried about what the doctor would say, Hazel ends up getting good news.
OutDaughtered: What Is Hazel Busby’s Eye Condition?
At the beginning of the series, Hazel Busby had to have eye surgery. While watching the show, viewers could tell that this was remarkably difficult for Adam Busby and Danielle Busby. So, when there was a possibility that Hazel would have to have surgery again, they were devastated. However, since her first surgery, they have been able to manage with glasses, an eye patch, and medication. In addition, Hazel has to go to the eye doctor every 3-5 months.
At an eye exam prior to this, the Busbys received good news. Hazel Busby was able to get rid of the eye patch. However, fans found her quite adorable with the extra accessory. In an official Busby update on their blog, fans get more details about Hazel’s eyes.
Apparently, Adam Busby and Danielle Busby Busby have started to worry about Hazel Busby’s eyes. This is for a couple of reasons. Because of COVID, Hazel’s last few dates were virtual. Understandably, the Busbys seemed to recognize that they were not getting a full examination in this way. Another reason Hazel’s parents were starting to worry is that they feel like they are starting to see more spins from Hazel. Fans of OutDaughtered may recognize that turning her head is one of the ways Hazel compensates for her eyesight.
So, since it’s been a while since Hazel has seen a doctor in person, Danielle Busby seems convinced that Dr. Meagan wanted to do an operation.
Fortunately, the Busbys get some good news. Hazel Busby just needed new medication. Now, it seems that Danielle Busby is relieved that Hazel doesn’t need eye surgery. She also seems relieved that she and Adam won’t have to “divide and conquer” Hazel’s date for a few more months.
Hazel Busby’s eye doctor is in Austin, Texas. From the looks of the blog post and YouTube video, Danielle Busby didn’t have it easy this time while Adam and Hazel were in Austin. When she woke up, Beaux was sick. So she had to go back and forth to the vet with all the girls who were home.
