Eye Doctor(s) Visit at the University of Iowa - January 27, 2015
It was our first visit with them in over 3 years, but now that we live closer and it is a 2 and 1/2 hour drive versus a 4 and 1/2 hour drive we'll be going back on a yearly basis.
Both doctors were very happy with how well Ethan is using what vision he has and his overall development (the last time they saw Ethan he wasn't even a year old yet). It is so nice to see doctors who know about PBD-ZSD and who really focus not on a number in regards to what Ethan's acuity is, but rather what Ethan is doing with the vision he has. BEST NEWS --- Ethan's far-sightedness is no longer significant enough to really warrant glasses (especially since he has never accepted them and their philosophy is that if they helped him enough he would wear them), so they are in agreement that glasses wouldn't serve any real purpose at this time. Ethan's vision still sucks because he has PBD-ZSD, but at least I feel so much better about his refusal to wear his glasses, and now I have permission to not worry about them at all!
Overall, it was a great visit.
