Eye Doctor Update

Yesterday Michael had his semi-annual checkup with the opthalmologist. He did well on the vision tests but his vision has gotten a little worse. He has become more near-sighted since the last appointment. It has been a year since he got a new pair of glasses so the doctor wrote a new prescription. The good news is that his lenses haven't moved and the dislocation is the same as last time.

And I was finally able to get Katie and Michael on the same schedule for their appointments. At the next 6 month checkup, Katie and Michael will be seen on the same day. This is such a relief because we are always at the appointments for at least 2 hours. Trying to keep 2 kids entertained for that amount of time in a small area can be quite difficult. Michael is pretty cooperative now but I spend most of the time chasing Katie around the waiting area and up and down the hallways.

Todd also had his second follow-up appointment from his second eye surgery to remove his lens. Everything looks good and his vision is 20/30 in the right eye with glasses, which is better than it has ever been before. He was having some problems with dry eye in his left eye but that has almost resolved itself with the use of eye drops. He will have another appointment in 3 months to see if his vision has changed any further.
