Most recently, Nicholas has been diagnosed with poor eye sight. He is near-sighted with a slight astigmatism in each eye. An astigmatism is a misshaping of the eye. Many individuals diagnosed with PWS wear glasses and are also at risk for developing strabismus. This is when the eyes are not properly aligned with one another. Nicholas does not have strabismus.
Last week our appointment with the opthamologist uncovered the need for new glasses. The opthamologist explained to me that since Nicholas is near-sighted, his vision will most likely get worse over time. Since I too am near-sighted, I know that what she has said is true....as I am blind as a bat!
After our appointment, Nicholas picked out some new glasses. He was immediately attracted to a pair of very cool blue ones.
The glasses are navy blue but look black in the photo.
I think he looks like Clark Kent!
