PSA- Get your kids' eyes checked even if there doesn't seem to be a problem.
Well, as most of you have known, my middle kid, Cole (8) has had some difficulty with reading. We were always confused because he seemed to *see* fine both close and far away. Well, I took him to a routine eye exam and have found that due to somethings, Cole only has one eye that is doing the work. He had 20/30 vision but his brain ignores what his right eye sends to it because the two eyes don't align right. Now, he doesn't looked cross eyed nor do his eyes move around when he focuses. We had no idea he had a problem. The only thing is that sometimes at nights he'd have mild headaches and also when he would get frustrated he would *sometimes* say that his head hurt. I contributed that to getting head achy when tired or upset which isn't uncommon.
We have to go to a specialist, and hopefully, we won't have to have surgery preformed. 8( Go get your kids checked, ladies, even if you can't tell there is a problem. Cole might never be able to get this eye in working order again. *sigh*
