Kyle went to the Eye Dr. on Tuesday, and the poor kid really couldn’t see a thing. Turns out he has congenital cataracts in both eyes and a stigmatism in the left. He couldn’t make out a single letter on any of the lines she showed him. Good news is the cataracts are not severe enough to need surgery, and also they were able to give him contacts to correct his vision. He can see better than me now! I felt really bad about him not being able to see. The Dr. said not to feel bad, that I really had no way of knowing unless he told me he couldn’t see and unfortunately he didn’t know because he didn’t know any different.
We went to the DPS yesterday and he passed the eye exam without problems…in fact he was reading off the letters so fast that she was like OK OK…LOL
He has been going around reading signs and everything else he sees. I am so PROUD for him. He keeps making comments about how wonderful it feels! I am ONE HAPPY MOM right now :)
