It’s normal for them. I know this. I see it everyday. Yet when it was right under my nose in my own home, I was completely shocked. Let me explain:
My 3.5 year old son would be classified as an easy kid. He’s mellow, obedient and frankly pretty cute. Contrast with his 8 year old sister who is one out of three.
My little guy stops into the office here and there to say hello and so I’ve been monitoring his eyes for a few years. He’s always had a mild amount of astigmatism but just like I tell my patients: I’m not going to prescribe eyeglasses for anyone (especially a toddler) unless they are absolutely necessary. For goodness sakes he sees every airplane in the sky, all the antelope on the side of the road and picks out all kinds of pictures in his books.
