ADELE BARBARO

 

So, turns out that I need glasses but that was no surprise. What did surprise us was to learn that Harvey is red/green colour blind! Paul and I sat dumb founded as we watched our little boy unable to see a square that we could clearly see, on every single page. And then we went on to learn about what he actually sees with this condition. There goes your wish to be a pilot little one! Turns out it’s actually very common, effecting 1 in 8 boys and I something he inherited from my dad! But I would never have known this without going to an optometrist for a full eye assement. In addition to the maternal screening that is offered for kids his age, a full assessment should be done before starting school and then again before high school as they cover so much more.
.
Paul was perfectly fine, while I need glasses. I learnt that I was short sighted to a degree but I also have a weak left eye that gives up when forced to concentrate on something too much. It was fascinating! The whole team at our local and independently owned practice were amazing and our assessments were thorough but most of all, our optometrist was brilliant with Harvey. Now, the fun begins.... which glasses!? I love the clear! But I’m going to go back on my own and not rush it.

@sophierodstrom: My sons only 8 months old but will get him tested as my father is coloured blind. Back in the days before they had labels, they shaved a bit of the end of the pencil to write the child’s name. My gran would have to write the colour 🙊 and has trouble at traffic lights too! Lucky we live in the country! And his a farmer so he would have to take us kids with him to see if the crop was coming up or not 😂
