I took Collin in for an eye exam before he started kindergarten. I was really surprised to find out that he has really really poor vision in his left eye. It is basically a lazy eye but not showing by a wandering eye. The doctor said his brain basically turns off his left eye. I was so surprised because he was able to pass the eye exam at his five year old checkup and his preschool screening I just took him in because it was free exam and I thought it would be good to have a professional one before school. Good thing I did. He has to wear glasses with a strong prescription in his left eye and a weaker one in his right. Hopefully, this will make him use his left eye more. I take him back at the end of the month to see how the glasses are working; if they are not working well he will have to wear an eye patch on his right eye. He has been very responsible with the glasses even thought we have had to go back twice in the two weeks he has had them for repairs (once was a fluke screw thing the other was Kade grabbed them off his face and bent them).
