Just an update....We got a pair of glasses for Jamie. They cost us 940.10 when all was said and done. We ran into problems with having them cut to fit in the frames. The lenses come from California uncut. We then had to got to an optometrist to buy frames and have them cut to fit. The optometrists did not want to touch the lenses because they were not from there store so if they broke they were not covered. We ended up getting insurance on them right away and then on the whole glasses once they were cut. Jamie's lenses are olive green in color and are a combination of 5 colors, Amber , rose and 3 shades of green. He has adjusted well and the kids at school think they are cool. He is to wear his all the time due to the depth perception and tunnel vision problems that come with this. He is finding it easier to read but they say it will take 6 months before we see improvemnet. We finally found that a few local service clubs are willing to give some money towards the glasses which will be a big help.
