Another One in Glasses

This one made me mad. We've been in TN for about 3 1/2 years and we're still trying out eye docs. I had noticed this guy's eye turning in (*R* and I both have a lazy eye and started patching before we were 3.) So about 2-3 months ago I took him to have his eyes checked. This husband/wife team said that there was absolutely nothing wrong with him and that it was normal for his eyes to turn since he was so young. I'd never heard that before, but the reasons he gave me sounded plausible. At that point I thought I was being paranoid about the little dude's eyes.

Over the last few months I had noticed that the turning had gotten progressively worse. So much so, that when we had a family picture taken his eyes are crossed in the pic! 

Last Monday I took him to our new favorite Dr. =) He said that eyes turning is most certainly NOT normal at any age. AND he has a pretty strong Rx. So it wasn't just the eye turning that made me mad... the other doctor completely missed (or ignored) the fact that he has terrible eye sight. (Unfortunately, he got that from me, poor kid.)

Without further ado... here's our newest eye glasses wearer.


  1. What a cute little guy! What a relief to know that your mommy instincts were correct!

  2. Oh he looks so precious and smart!

  3. I must say I'm a sucker for little kids wearing glasses!

    Both my girls didn't need them until about 8yo. Ds still doesn't-----he's probably the ONLY member of our extended family, with the exception of a 5yo nephew, who doesn't yet wear glasses or contacts. I've had finding-a-good-eye-doctor frustrations over the years, too.

  4. AWWWWW he is still a cutie I have 3 outta 4 in glasses LOL

  5. Love the glasses; he's just so adorable no matter what.

  6. He's adorable. Reminds me of my son who got glasses (and patches) at 2. They are so much happier when they can see! :)

  7. Love the little glasses and the cowlick at his part! Just precious!
