And I'm surprisingly OK with it. I've come a loooong way since my initial post regarding his eyes back in March. As you recall, he was diagnosed with accomodative esotrophia and they gave him bifocals, and he has to wear a patch for 2 hours every.single.day. He's never complained about it once.
The patch has significantly improved the sight in the "bad" eye. We started at 20/140, and now he is at 20/25-30. Great progress. But the muscles still aren't working together like they should and it causes his eyes to cross when focusing. So he will be having surgery in the next month. There's a possibility that he may need more than one surgery, but i'm hopeful that one should do the trick.
He said to me in the dr. office yesterday that he didn't want to have to wear glasses. Poor little guy. He's never said it before and I wonder if the transistion to Kindergarten has something to do with it. I asked if anyone teased him about it, and he said no. The bonus with the surgery, is that there is an 80% chance that he will no longer need glasses with a bifocal lens. There is also a 50% chance that he won't need glasses at all after the surgery. That would be so awesome, but i'm trying not to be too hopeful.
