We immediately went to the pharmacy at Super Target and I asked about the patches. She told me that they sell some that are like a bandaid but that they can irritate the skin. Then she told me that her daughter has to wear a patch and that she bought a felt re-usable one from Patch Pals!
I ran home, found their website and almost cried with joy! They have a bunch of cute designs for the front of the patch and they were only $10 a piece. Alex picked out the one he wanted and we ordered it.
It arrived in two days!!
Now the hard work. He has to wear it for 3 hours a day and he can't watch TV while he's wearing it....he has to play, or draw....concentrate on something. So far, he's doing great and has been working on some pre-school apps on my iPad and building with his legos.
Isn't he cute in his patch?
My silly boy informed me that his eye isn't lazy....it's just bored.
And he's ready for some football!
*disclaimer* I was not paid by Patch Pals for my post or given a patch. I just want other parents to know about this great product that is making our life easier.
