Mr. Mica started this thing where he blinked excessively when he was in Kindergarten. His doctor said that some kids get tics. They often times grow out of it.
I asked him if anything is bothering him, and told him that if anything is in fact bothering him that he should let us know. Nothing seems to be bothering him. I believe him when he tells me that. Mica's an open book kind of kid that really has no filter. Last year when a girl liked him, gave him things, and he didn't like her back he told me EVERYTHING.
It could be allergies. I have them big time, and my boys do get them too.
It could be nothing, or it could be something. I kind of feel like we should do our parent duty, and have his blinky problem looked into.
I made the mistake of googling it. Loads of problems came up.
I put in a message to his doctor's office on Friday night; just to be on the safe side. I got the giggles when I started typing, "My son blinks a lot..." I said, "Travis please take over because I don't even know what to say." It just sounded really funny. Travis made it sound good.
We also notice that he squints when watching TV.
The doctor's office responded with, "Dr. Harrison should see him."
I was looking more for the response, He'll need to see an Opthamologist. Here are a few sources: ...
Don't get me wrong I love Dr. Harrison, but he's not an eye doctor.
I called this morning, left a message saying everything + leaving Travis' number. My phone works horrible at my work. Reception in general is bad at my work.
The doctor's office called me back. When I couldn't answer they called Travis.
It's as if they didn't listen to my message at all. Travis had to repeat everything I said. Then the nurse said, "I'll have to run this all by Dr. Harrison to see what he has to say."
We're stuck in blinky limbo land with the doctor's office.
Have you ever had eyesight, or eye problems?
