The result....glasses!

We just got back from the Ophthalmologist. Tommy will need to wear glasses all the time. He has 20/50 vision, lazy eye (in both eyes) and Astigmatism. He is also color blind! This is a far cry from what the Optometrists said last year.

I am hoping this will cure the headaches he is getting. It is such a sigh of relief that it is glasses and not something more serious.

Thank you for all your kind words everyone! I can't wait to see his little face in them.

Rebecca, He is going to look so handsome in glasses!! I can't wait to see! Glad to know there is an answer. It will be interesting to see if his headaches stop once he starts wearing the glasses. Good luck!

Oh that is GREAT! There are lots of FUN options out there. Make sure you buy an insurance policy for the frames and lenses! We did this at Pearle Vision. It was $40 more and our insrance wouldn't cover it.. BUT when Pete had to go back in every other day because he bit the nose pads off it paid for itself!! Are you going to have to patch for the lazy eye? We do and I LOVE the company we use. They have cool patterns on kid sized adhesive pads. We even got a snake poster w/slots for used patches. When Pete would get to a bend in the snake (having used that many patches) he'd get a treat. That was our saving grace because it made it fun for him. Here is the website we used http://ortopadusa.com/
Let me know how it goes:-)

Awwww sweet little guy! I was just talking to DH about being color blind. I am not but our friend is. I was saying "I wonder how you know your even color blind?" Now I know one way :)
My Dh was wearing a pink shirt (I know, I know but it was nice on him) and he said to our friend "what do you think of my shirt?" Our friends says "why is it pink?" huh?? He says it just looks gray to him. So it was kinda funny! I luv your site! Thanks for letting us poke around! Your family is amazing!

Kids in glasses are so dadgum cute.

I'm glad it was an 'easy fix', too. As opposed to something like glaucoma, like my kiddo has. Grrr.

I agree with BB, at least it's an easy fix and I think he'll look adorable in glasses. :)

Now glasses you can handle...so much better than some options. Hope his headaches go away now.

Aw, I can't wait to see pics. He will look adorable. How sad though that all of that came on all the sudden. It sounds like my problems lately. Stupid eyeballs..lol!
