We picked up the new glasses today. We put them on in Walmart, then I tried to get some shopping done: I had to put Nolan in the cart, because he kept walking along v-e-r-y slowly, looking at everything. He was quite pleased with how clear things were, and was really taking everything in.
I took the boys to the playground immediately after Walmart, and Nolan seemed to do well with the new spectacles. Right now, we only have two problems: one is his flat nasal bridge, which makes glasses very hard to fit. We have to have the saddle nose bridge piece and the cable arms to keep them in place.
They still slide down a lot, which leads to the second problem: Nolan keeps looking over the top of the lenses. The amblyopic eye needs to look through the lenses to help his brain recognize that vision is now possible in that eye. The glasses slip a little, and Nolan peeks.
