OK so eyes are starting to ...drive me bonkers? ALl my sons life different optometrists and opthamologists have all had their own ideas and opionions etc on my sons vision. MOst have agreed he had convergence problems.....now solved due to him now being totally blind in his surgical eye.....and he used to have severe astigmatism, but it has self corrected over time....he now only has very very minor astigmatism. (and new glasses coming, mostly required as protection from penetrating injury to his remaining eye, but will correct the little bit of astigmatism, but if not needing glasses to protect eye, they would have skipped rxing glasses) BUT all his life the eye people have always gone back and forth with his color vision. I never did understand why there was any question, I never understood how come the eye docs would not be able to say one way or another.....but they always said to me it was inconclusive if he had colorblindness or not. (yeesh) Until today. FINALLY an eye exam confirmed- he has red/green color defieciency AND blue. I understand 7-8% of males in our country have red/green color deficiency, less common for a person to have blue def. But.....I am wondering if there is any issues to be addressed in a learning environment due to this? I am thinking no, not really......in a school setting it prolly won't ever be much of an issue? If I understand what I have read so far tonite, for the most part a child born with color deficiency usually self accomodates pretty much on their own along the way, for the most part? SO am I correct to assume it is not worth worrying about for anything academic? (altho the reality is even if I should worry, it prolly would do me no good here......) Due to his one eyedness, we already accomodate for reduced peripheral vision....and no depth perception......but truth is he himself has adapted quite well to the vision loss. (he did continue to have vision prior to his first surgery in Nov and before his 2nd surgery in March, but lost the vision after the march surgery when they also removed his lens and cornea after once again trimming down his retina and macula and again reattaching them) Seems children are amazingly resilient and adaptive....so I am thinking the color blindness is no big deal as far as school work?
