HI all my names Kathryn im 29 i was 26 when i had my son Lachlan he is now 2yrs 8months old he was born with cataracts in both eyes its a white dot that covers the centre of ur eye and if not removed u go blind hes had both remove and new lenses put in both eyes but he still lost vision so he classed as legaly blind he has 6/18 vision in his left eye and with the right eye they do not know yet they think he can see maybe 2 mertes but not clearly it may only be dark and light or blur shapes it just all a guessing game when it comes to childrens vision.

yes i looked it all up on line so that i knew about it when friends asked me what it was he got them from his fathers family his dad and aunty and grandmother had then to and it goes back about 200 yrs in thier family its a 50/50 chance of getting it so it be the same when lachlan grows up and has kids that all or some or none of them will get it we have a childrens hosp here in south australia and he's had all his op's there it is quite common in children as u can get then if u r born to soon, if its a family thing or if the mother gets a infection while pergent most ppl only think that old ppl get it and dont know that children can have them as well if his vision never in proves he will go to the school for vision inpaired children we r doing patching so we cover his left eye to make him use the right eye to try to in prove the sight he does use it but he allways say he cant see when the patch goes on it takes him about 5mins to a just to just using that eye but the doctors have seen some inprove ment in the last to weeks so all fingers r crossed that nothing else goes wrong as he all ready has rasied eye pursure in the right which does not help at all
