Glasses for Sam.

A couple months ago I took Sam to get his eyes checked; I hadn't noticed anything out of the ordinary; I mainly did it because of his general low muscle tone and to basically cross my T's and dot my I's, so to speak. We saw a pediatric optometrist here in town; she was very thorough in her exam and Sam passed with flying colors.

Then about 2 weeks ago I randomly noticed his left eye crossing to the center, ever so slightly.
At first I thought my mind was playing tricks on me, so I let it go. But then a few days later I noticed it again, and then my mom noticed as well, without me even telling her about it. It seemed to get worse and more frequent as the days went by, and I was able to get some pictures on my phone.

Exhibit A: Week 1 (ever so slight crossing of that left eye)

Exhibit B: Week 2 (much more pronounced here)

 I decided to make another appointment.  I felt sort of crazy going in again and still felt like the doctor might not even notice it. Luckily she did, and she told me it was completely normal for this condition to pop up literally overnight. She performed another exam and this time she found that Sam has what is called strabismus, which is essentially a muscle problem within the eye that causes him to over-focus and thus he is a little bit farsighted. She told me that I could either wait a month or so to see if it corrected itself, or we could go ahead and treat it now with glasses. I asked her what she would do with her own child, and she told me that because of Sam's low muscle tone, she really didn't think this would resolve on it's own, and could in fact get worse. She recommended treating him now so that hopefully it won't get any worse and so that we can possibly avoid patching, eye drops, etc. So that is our goal right now.

Sam was so good at his appointment and he talked to everyone in the waiting room.
"I go see doctor. She check my eyes."
Then when we came out, "I gettin gwasses!" with his little lisp. Everyone was cracking up.

Of course he was happy to pick out 83 pairs of frames to try on, and with each and every one he had a comment, "Dees are cute."  "Dees too big."  "I wike dees."  "Mommy, wook at me!"

We finally decided on a pair of metal frames. 
Is this not the cutest thing ever? 

Unfortunately the lady called me back the next day and said those frames had been discontinued, so she is ordering a few similar sets for us to come in and look at. Hopefully we can show them to everyone soon.
I can't believe my boy will be in glasses! I'm glad we were able to catch it early though, and thankful for a thorough doctor who took the time to check him out again!
