Quinn Aaai Issues

So we have to go see an Opthalmologist tomorrow...

Quinn is 12 (nearly 13) and has been wearing prescription specs since he was around 8 years old. His first prescription was -1.5 in both eyes. His eyes have deteriorated steadily and quite rapidly since (his father's family all have/had fairly bad eye sight) and his latest test on Tues showed R- -6.5 and L - 6.75 and he also has astigmatism. The optometrist thought it was a good idea for him to be seen by an opthalmologist to ensure there are no other issues or factors we should be managing. She is concerned about how fast and steadily his eyesight is declining and it shows no sign of slowing down.

Aaai. This poor child. Bad hearing AND Bad Eyesight! That just sucks donkey-balls man!

This shows how his sight has declined since 2008:

  1. Oh you know I have so much sympathy on the eye issues - L's one eye is -6 with a total blind spot on the inner thrid.
