I am new to this board but have been on JM almost 2 years now. To give you a brief background, my name is Chelsea and my DH is Joseph. Our miracle boy is Travis. He was due November 23, 2008 but arrived almost 17 weeks early on July 29, 2008. He was 1lb 3.5oz and 11 inches long. Travis spent 142 days in the NICU with many complications and scary scary times. Thankfully he has done miraculous since he came home over a year ago! He is crawling everywhere, very social, ALWAYS happy and just so much fun to be around. He has overcome so many obstacles. In the NICU he was diagnosed with Stage 3 ROP and Plus Disease and had Laser eye surgery to correct it. The surgery was very successful but we knew that because of the extensive lasering that was done to save his vision, he would eventually need glasses. To our surprise, eventually is now. His vision is pretty terrible, he is extremely near sighted (his RX is -7) so he will be receiving his glasses probably early next week. If anyone has experience keeping glasses on an active 18 month old, I am open to ideas and advice!! I look forward to "meeting" you all!
Hello. I'm Elizabeth. My DD is Angelica and the reason I'm on this board. She is very Farsighted and we are waiting to see if her vision corrects itself enough so that she can get by without. My ony advice is jsut try to keep them on him as much as you can the first few days until he realizes that he can see better with them on than when he pulls them off then he'll want them on.
