I'm at the eye specialist, now. I hope Cole isn't in for a rough time.

He has to patch his good eye so his brain will stop ignoring his bad eye.

My oldest DS (8) patches his eye too. He's done really well with it. How long does he patch for? DS is down to 2 hours a day.

He has to patch for no less than four hours. The longer the better, I guess.

Thank you! He isn't a big fan so far.

Well, he has only had it a few days. The special glasses he used helped quite a bit, too.
