Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
I just found out about it but he said he noticed it when he started the new school, because they use white boards and it's really obvious when looking at the white board. that was in january. he has high functioning autism...doesn't volunteer info
this is my older son, you were very helpful just now when I asked about my younger boy...thought I'd ask about this since you were online
he hasn't seen an opthalmologist since he was 9, he was seen every year for a few years because he was diagnosed with nf1, then it was decided that he didn't have nf1.... his fathers family has what some call an nf variant. neither nf1 or nf2.
mainly multiple meningiomas. his dad and grandma and 5 great aunts/uncles
those are the only things that can cause this?
his only mri was when he was 7. it was normal then. we had an appt today because he's been having a different kind of headache lately. the ped looked in his eyes but didn't see anything wrong...
said it was a tension headache but couldn't explain the vision thing
so I should probably try to get another ophthalmology appt for him then? it's kind of tough to get those with the insurance...but I can find a way.
can the pediatrician see those problems with his little light scope (I don't know what it's called)
I'll get working on that then. for now, I've had a long day and need to shelf things for the evening for my sanity. Thank you again for your help and knowledge...
