Turns out, his vision had changed. A LOT! Poor kid needed almost an entire degree change in each lens. This picture is of his new glasses -- and the most important thing is that he can now see clearly!
Zeiss Lenses has some great educational information available about vision care, eye appointments and the ever-important lenses when vision correction is necessary. They recommend an eye exam every 2 years once kids are in school, but obviously if there appears to be a vision change, then more often. I remember one year when Colin needed 3 different prescriptions within the same year!
I also appreciated the information about vision after the age of 40. I've worn progressive lenses for a few years now, and while I sort of understood the need for reading glasses, the article provided me with the facts. After a certain age, the crystalline lens over your eye loses flexibility, which makes it harder to focus on close objects.
I've worn glasses or contacts since I was 5 or 6 years old. Vision isn't something I take for granted, and I am grateful for the improvements in vision correction!
