This is my sweet "Plum" who is now wearing glasses! He has a lazy eye
(well two lazy eyes,but one is more dominate).

The official name of his eye condition is called starbismus- esotropia. The glasses are suppose to help the "lazy eye" correct itself. He doesn't need the glasses for his vision, but he needs to wear them from dawn to dusk to try and correct his "lazy eye". It took a while to get him to keep them on (he is only 2 1/2.) But he is doing pretty well with it now. We are on our second pair of glasses, because the doctor had prescribed a little bit stronger lens, it's a good thing he did because about a week after he broke the first pair of glasses. So now we have to be extra careful, I don't want to have to get another pair it's only been 5 months since we got the first pair.

He can be quite a ham!

We will be going in a couple of weeks to find out if the glasses are working or if he will need surgery. I believe it will be a very simple procedure, but non the less I do not want him to have to have surgery. We will keep you posted. Please say a little pray for him!

He looks so grown up wearing his glasses. I like the frames :)
