It was something the Pediatrician told us before. Being exposed to oxygen in the NICU (due to low birth weight - born at 8 months weighing only 2 pounds) might affect our 8yo boy's vision adversely... 😞.
Having imperfect eyesight that runs on both sides of the family didn't help his case. So when he had his refraction yesterday, we were not too surprised when he was diagnosed with astigmatism. He was prescribed to wear eyeglasses to manage his vision.
So today was his first day. He was a little uneasy at the start... Soon, wearing this new accessory is something he will (have to) get used to. Awkward just like when he was weaned from disposable diapers and introduced to briefs, but I'm sure it will grow on him.
