So I found out yesterday that there's a huge discrepancy in the longsightedness of my boy's eyes and if left untreated it could turn into a lazy eye.
He has healthy looking eyes but when one of his eye has a white reflex in the Christmas photos I got concerned because I have heard about cancer etc.
although the optometrists said it was good and healthy I took him to the specialist anyway and was freakin out a bit when I found out, as you would as a mother who's not familiar with this sort of things.
But apparently it could be fixed with some eye patch and glasses. He's 3.5.
So last night I posted this story on my areas mother group forum on Facebook thinking it could be helpful to some mums, because I was that close to forgetting about the appointment because his eyes just look so fine! Not to mention the specialist fee! Anyways, a lot of the mothers found it helpful but there's a few mums started having a go at me, one lady said why would I use flash kids eyes are sensitive (it's actually the only time I used a flash in his life and it had gone off automatically because it was too dark) another lady was like why are you freakin out no big deal it's only a lazy eye and no one can tell and don't need flash blah blah.
Maybe I am taking this too personally. Just needed to vent a little.
