Subject   st: log rank test for paired data

I have a small dataset (n=12 children) with time to event data for each eye (24 eyes). There are 2 subgroups (of the eyes), group 1 has less severe disease, group 2 has more severe disease. A child can have any combination of these (eg left eye more severe, right eye less severe, etc).
I can use sts test to test for difference in time to event between the 2 groups (using n=24 eyes) but this does not take into account the clustered nature of the data.
Is there any way I can do a log-rank test which takes into account the clustering?

Thanks
