For years, our son struggled with episodes where his eyes would cross if he was tired, TU, oversugared or otherwise physically stressed. In fifth grade he also started having trouble with blurring when switching from seatwork to looking up at the board and back and ready for any length of time was always difficult.
In 2nd grade, a pediatric ophthalmologist advised us to pursue a surgical option but the eye-crossing was neither constant nor consistent, and never were convinced it wouldn't cause different problems to more his muscles. What about the majority of the time when he saw perfectly well? what about the fact the he passed all the depth perception tests?
Thank god for Dr. McBrayer opening an office here in Chattanooga, for a new optometrist who knew about her and sent us over, and for the training our son received so that he could coordinate his eyes, compensate for their tendency to cross, end end up in combat of his own vision. He now reads as long as he wants to, has no problems with rapid repeated back and forth in class, on the ball field or anywhere. What a wonderful improvement in his life carry him into a brighter future. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
