We may have to try different things especially right now as he's growing and learning how to keep better control over his eyes. For now, the doctor wants to try glasses. They watch him pretty close and we see the doctor at least every 6 months right now to keep a close watch over his progress. We've done patches in the past, and never had much luck with those. Even though Isaiah sees 20/20 right now the glasses are a little like holding a magnifying glass in front of him to help him focus. It'll be pretty tough to relearn looking at things, but so far today he's done great.
We went with a really cheap pair at first because I wanted to be sure he was going to even keep them on. The doctor told us not to be surprised if he wouldn't keep them on because of the difference in vision. If he does well with these we'll probably get him another pair that will likely last longer than these. We did get a pair with a 1 year warranty as I'm sure he'll break them sooner or later.
Here are a few pics of my sweet boy with his "new eyes." He told me we were going to be twins since we both will wear glasses!
I think he looks a lot like me in this picture. The flash messed up, so it's not really clear, but still so stinking cute!
Such a little mess!
Love this one. Such a cutie pie!
I'm including this picture so that you can get a little bit of the idea of what the problem is right now. You'll notice that the eye on the left(looking at the picture) is focused higher than the one on the right. We want him to use his eyes together and have them be lined up. After this picture I told him, "Use both eyes, Buddy!" and he was able to realign.
