Glasses for Another 11 Years (Give or Take)

Post to Twitter .

Our little man will continue to wear glasses for an undetermined amount of time.  The doctor said it could be 6 months or 11 years.  It could be somewhere in between that or even longer than that.  We don’t know.

The funny part is that his eyes are perfect right now and the surgery was a success.

What? So why the glasses?

When we take Owen’s glasses off he rubs his eyes and he will say “My eyes bug me.”

The doctor witnessed this twice while we were there.  And the solution was simple.  Owen is telling us that he feels better with the glasses on.  His eyes are perfect, but Owen is telling us that he needs his glasses still.

So of course I had to ask whether his eyes have just become dependent on them?  What happens if we stop wearing them?  Will he adjust to not having them and his eyes will stop bugging him?

Of course it’s not that simple, but I had to ask anyway.  I was told that his eyes will slowly start to weaken and cross again.


But that’s ok.  No more surgeries as far as we can tell and that is the main thing.  I never want to go through that again.  Ever.  The first eye muscle surgery was not fun, but a second eye muscle surgery was definitely more than enough.

We can live with glasses.  And he is so freaking cute in them.  Don’t you agree?
