Jack was recently issued glasses by the Optician at Sunderland Eye Hospital.
Jack started school nursery in January, and attends five mornings a week.
Jack was three in December. Over the past year he’s continued to do well and exceed our expectations. The terrible twos’ have been tricky at times (help!), but we think this is more to do with personality (Jack remains very independent!) and age rather than sight.
What a special and successful day this first ever international nystagmus awareness raising day has been
We are very pleased to announce the arrival of Fletcher – a new brother for Jack and Isaac – who was born earlier this month.
2012 has been a great year. Spending time with Jack and Isaac has been fast paced and very rewarding.
Next month I’ll be dressing up as a carrot and taking part in the Fight for Sight Carrots NightWalk.
This evening we saw Jack’s eyes move the fastest they ever have.
We are very pleased to announce the arrival of Isaac who was born earlier this month.
Professor Irene Gottlob’s team at Leicester University hospital are one of the leading research centres for nystagmus in the UK. So when the Nystagmus Network recently publicised information about a new hand held OCT (Ocular Coherence Tomography) scanner they’ve helped purchase for Leicester and advertised for volunteers to take part in trials there I got in touch straight away. We are very keen to help out in any research that can help make a difference for the future.
