When I took Christian for his well-check earlier this year, the pediatrician did a standard vision screening and said that Christian needed to go to the eye doctor. I took him this morning and lo and behold, the vision in his left eye is not so good! He's never complained, or had any trouble with his eyes before and has always tested 20/20 on the screening tests.
And by not so good, I mean that the vision in his left eye is 20/400! Do you know what 20/400 is? THAT IS THE "E" AT THE TOP OF THE EYE CHART!!!!! The kid could not make out the "E" with his left eye when his right eye was covered! How is it possible that your vision could be that bad and no one, including Christian, had ever noticed?
The optometrist said that the difference between what his left eye (20/400) and his right eye (20/25) was transmitting was so great that his brain was completely disregarding his left eye. His right eye has been doing all of the work!
So he now has contacts!
