|In June 2006 Nathan was diagnosed with Amblyopia. As a result we started patching his right eye for 2 hours a day. After his two month check-up patching went up to 3 hours. His third check-up resulted in 6 hours of patching each day, split into two 3 hour sessions. Then 3 hours a day... and now we are currently patching 4 hours hoping for further improvement with his vision in his left eye.
Here are some links to information on Amblyopia, and also some links where you can buy non-adhesive patches. We switch to the non-adhesives when the regular patches start to irritate his skin.
