When Alex had his surgery this summer his vision was tested while he was sedated, along with his pressures since kids with RTS have a greater chance of having glaucoma.
His pressures were fine, but his vision was not. He is near sighted, so if we aren't close to him, we are blurry. Its how it has been all his life. The doctor said he can see the tree, but probably cant see the individual leaves.
So reluctantly I went and picked up his glasses on Sunday. Why reluctantly? HE SCREAMED when the lady tried to fit him for glasses, and he really doesn't like anyone but me touching his face. So I was sure it wasn't going to go well.
SURPRISE, SURPRISE! Alex you fooled me!
I sat him in his favorite chair, put in a movie, and slipped on the glasses. He started to look around the house like he was in a new place, he was curious and took them off a lot, but never cried, never seemed the least bit bothered by them.
I took him to his favorite windows so he could look out and actually see the great outdoors! It was so much fun to see him see things for the first time CLEARLY! I must say he is the most handsome boy in glasses I have ever seen!
