took p. to the optometrist today since he had been complaining that his left eyes was blury. the end result is that he's getting glasses, pretty strong ones at that. apparently he has refractive amblyopia, though it was very well masked since both eyes look completely normal and healthy and he's been compensating rather perfectly with his right eye. but a thorough checking showed it up today and now he's getting glasses. he'll never have perfect vision in his left eye, but they expect it to get pretty good and that as an adult he could have it corrected with laser surgery should he so choose.
thankfully he's got a great face for glasses and the frames he picked out look awesome on him =)
