Zander has been complaining about double vision the last couple of weeks. At first I thought it was because a friend in his class got glasses. Cool glasses too!
However, he continued to complain and even though the brothers were convinced he was doing it himself, I decided to take him to an optometrist.
Well, he is not forcing his eyes to do that. He has low muscle tone in his eyes. Called hypotonia. He has exercises that we need to do, that will hopefully make them stronger. If not, he will get reading glasses to make reading easier. It can’t be fun if your work goes all out of focus just like that. I hope that it will get better sooner rather than later. Optometrist gave it six months to improve.
Also, the nerves in his right eye is larger than in the left. That is obviously not good and he will keep a close eye (no pun intended) on that. So instead of going every second year for a check-up, he will go yearly.
Here’s to hoping he won’t need glasses and that the enlarged nerves will cause no damage.
