Holy Cow!

Parson told me the other day that he couldn't see the board very well at school. This surprised me a little since I just got him glasses 6 months ago. I called the school and had the nurse recheck his eyes. She called me back and said I needed to get him in to the doctor.
I took him to the doctor and this is where the Holy Cow comes in to place-his sight is 3 times worse than it was 6 months ago! They are 2 full points worse than they were! The doctor put his hand about 3 feet in front of Parson's face and said he wasn't seeing anything beyond his hand clearly.
The poor kid. He didn't get a single thing from me except his eyesight. Ain't that the way it goes...

Wow. That is some serious degeneration.......I wonder if he noticed it getting worse and worse? Glad he has such good parents who take him to the doctor immediately. My parents were told I needed an eye exam in 2nd grade. I finally got one in the 7th. Nice.

Poor baby that was certainly quick! As Angie said at least you were quick to get him to the Doctor - is it going to get worse?

Honestly, I was legally blind. My husband had to wear glasses/contacts, but his wasn't too bad. He could pass the drivers license test w/out them. I think all of my kids are doomed!
