|In the waiting room|
Dr. Andorsky, who was new to us, was very nice and pretty funny. He did a pretty quick exam, shining lights in James eyes and using various lenses. The verdict? James is a little bit near-sighted (not shocking considering how blind I am) with a slight astigmatism. There is no need for glasses at this point, but the doctor said it was more of a "not yet" rather than a "no" on the glasses. The blood vessels and back of his eyes were perfect, with no need for concern. We go back in a year, but mainly to check the near-sightedness, not the blood vessels, etc. that were a concern due to James having oxygen after birth.
After his appointment, James and I swung by his Grandma's office to say hello to her and her coworkers. James wasn't sure why he had to go see all these people, but he was well behaved and ate a little snack in Grandma's office. We only stayed a little while, then it was off to daycare and work for the two of us!
