My son has had to wear glasses since he was 1. We go back to the doctor every 3-4 months.
He is a big boy now and knows all his letters...and has, but they have always had him look at pictures. I was so happy that he'd be able to make this step up in the world, and new he would feel proud too.
The tech turned on the screen got him at the right height in his chair and asked him to "read" the letters...I immediately saw the wheels turning in my little Kindergartners head...the poor kids was trying to sound out the series of letters instead of say one at a time...SO CUTE. After I realized he was trying to sound them out I explained to him that we only read one letter at a time. After that mix up he did very well.
Ethan's eye are very close to being the same strength, his bad eye is only about 2 lines difference that his good eye...AND he can see 3D which is GREAT...kids with amblyopia usually cannot see 3D!! So yeah for my little guy.
Since his appointment 3 weeks ago, we have only missed 2 times, so we are doing well!!
