Our son was delighted to have an eye test at the opthamologist's office yesterday and find out his vision is close to 20/20 in both eyes, so he does not need any glasses at this point in his life. Like his father, he is absent minded enough to neither need nor want a pair of glasses to have to remember to take with him and wear when necessary. Whew!
As far as the eye surgery, well, the opthamologist decided that since the rust is not impeding our son's vision and has not moved at all since the accident about six weeks ago now, he did not want to poke any more holes in the cornea to remove it. That is quite a relief. It was bad enough having the cornea damaged by the metal and subsequent removal of that, but all seems to be well there too. Of course if anything changes with that rust it will have to be removed, but for now we rejoice in this very good news.
Thank you so much for praying for him! I don't know who is more grateful...himself or us!!
