After waiting five months, we finally had Nathaniel's vision looked into. The visit was very strange. We got into an opthamologist that no one can get into. The Dr. seemed to have forgotten that she allowed us in and questioned me how we were able to make an appointment. Once that was cleared up, we were able to get on with the visit.
I walked out of the office frustrated. Lily's last opthamologist said she had an astigmatism and prescribed glasses that would correct that. This doctor says she does not have an astigmatism. That is a huge difference! Maybe this answers why Lily was not wanting to wear her glasses. Hopefully, we now have the correct prescription.
It appears that Nathaniel does not need glasses. The unexpected was that he has a small optic nerve. This can possibly go along with the fact that he is so tiny. We will be referred to an Endochronologist. I'm not sure what all that means, but plan to get to the bottom of it.
We still do not know their visual acuity. I keep hoping that each visit will tell us but, that is not the case. I guess they need to get a little older before they can assess acuity. So, we don't know how bad their vision is. I have no idea if they will be able to be print readers or need to learn Braille. I'm praying that large font and magnification will be all that is needed. I'm trying to trust in the Lord and not jump ahead to the possibilities and what ifs.
