This post is something Ive touched upon before, but finally today i thought id address it.
My little mans, 'special eyes' 'dopey eyes' 'sleepy eyes' 'lazy eye' or what ever else they want to be addressed as.

The specialist said that when he hits his teen years that he will be offered a operation to tighten up his eye lids so he doesn't look so 'dopey' as they put it. When this was mentioned i bust into tears the idea of my baby having to have an operation of any sort just puts fear into me.

The problem i have is that ever day we go out, we will always have someone come up and say 'he looks tired' or 'has he just woken up' or 'aww hes a dopey little chap isn't he' because his eyes make him seem that way. It used to really upset me because he is not dopey at all, and 9 times out of 10 he not tired either, but everyone seems to think its fine to comment, but i understand that they don't no his problems.
The problem with eye issues, is that we need him to be able to tell us whats going on for the problem to be sorted, it hard. Until then it will just be us going round in circles. Many more hospital appointments and flash cards and lights.
Keep your fingers crossed for us that we get more answers this time.
Id love to no if anyone else out there has been through or going through the same with your child's eyes.
