It seems we’re on a roll!

August 12, 2009

Alex had his monthly eye appointment this afternoon and left with some great news!  The atropine drop & plaino lens have been working and his vision is back up to 20/40!  (His last appointment results can be found by clicking: here).

This means he’s now back off the drops, but will keep the plaino lens for the next four weeks, which is the equivalent of part-time patching.

We now know that his eye will go back to 20/40 when forced to work.  They feel his vision will probably sit around the 20/50 line, but should anything happen to his stronger eye, his brain does know how to make the weaker one see at a 20/40.  They are happy with this, especially considering how far he has come since we started.

At this point, I don’t think he really cares about what line he’s made it to; he’s just happy to be off the drop again!
