Congenital Cataracts Suck

Ha, Ha. So life really is going pretty good even though its been crazy beyond belief between moving, Eye power sales, being on the today show, husband starting his last year of law school, a 2 year old daughter who has all but given up on sleeping and more! But really on the top of my mind has been CONTACTS, CONTACTS, CONTACTS!

Contacts are just a part of life and even though they are difficult we have figured out a pretty good routine. I feel like thats when things hit! We were getting kind of lax about checking for a contact in scotts eye because we got such an awesome fit at his last EUA. All of a sudden it all changed. Its amazing how that can happen. Its no longer fitting, staying in and getting lost in his eye. Patching has been hard because his contact keeps going below his eye lid and then he can no longer see. Poor boy! Looks like we will have to head to the PO and get a new fit!

But no matter what I do have to say….

No matter how much of a pain contacts and patcher are sometimes, I still have to celebrate that he does have vision in that eye and is accomplishing so many things! He is SUCH a HAPPY boy!
