Brocks Eye Exam

We also took Brock in this morning to have an eye exam under anesthesia. It went good the doctor said that his eyes looked good. He gave us a prescription for his contacts and also for a pair of backup glasses. And get this our little Brock has to get a pair of bifocals. Apparently Brock can see good far away but has trouble seeing up close. So we will see how that works. The doctor also realize something new about Brock today too. I have always thought that Brock saw pretty good with out his contacts in but the doctor always told me there was no way he could. So I told him again today that I thought that and it occurred to him that because Brock's pupils are so small and that the opening he is seeing through of the scar tissue that it is creating a pinhole effect (which basically means that a small stream of light is coming through the hole instead of the normal 3 streams of light and it goes straight to the back of the eye) which actually makes Brock vision clearer. He still wants him to do the contacts and glasses until Brock is actually old enough to communicate with him on how well he can or can't see. But I thought the whole thing was pretty interesting. S0 it was good news from Dr. Dries again today we are 2 for 2 this week.
