Optometrist

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.

  3. Glad you took him! Hope you get it sorted.
    My little one had 12 sessions of Eye Training at the end of last year/beginning of this year – also at an optometrist. Maybe you should get the same type of sessions for Zander? It was amazing what she could do with her eyes after the 12 sessions.

      That’s interesting. Our optometrist only gave me information as to what exercises had to be done. Didn’t offer at all that it could be done there
