Our idea of a "vacation" is hordes of appointments, and this one is no different This week we focused primarily on eye appointments. And Elliott WON. He's the only one that didn't end up with glasses. The kids see Dr. Baxstrom (or as my autocorrect on my ipod calls him, Dr. Vacation or Dr Backstroke!) Who is renowned all over the country as a developmental optometrist, which means that he doesn't just check their vision but also their tracking and binocularity, and other elements of healthy eye function. Each one of their needs are different and their glasses reflect that
Alex goes by himself now... sniff..
Nik stayed the same, glasses all the time for nearsightedness. But he's going back to seeing Judy again for neurological stuff
|Elliott is perfect! like usual :)|
|Leif is starting to have problems from too much close work, so he'll wear glasses for close work, reading, ipod, etc.|
|Ash has a prescription to use to help him block out other stimuli. Autistic kids can sometimes benefit from glasses to help their focus. he'll wear glasses when doing close work or when we want him to focus better.|
