Just being able to detect light is a huge difference than no vision at all. There's the Non-24 Hour Sleep-Wake Syndrome that is common with people who are totally blind. For a while I thought maybe Orion had this, but hey, he's still a baby and they usually wake up at night. So far, so good for Orion. (Good for Mom and Dad, too.)
So, with the tip I remembered from a CBSS Summer Institute workshop Thomas and I took back in June, I recorded Orion's reaction, or lack of, to sunlight. So, can you please look at this video and tell me what you think?
I'm bringing Orion to a pediatric/genetic opthalmologist at the National Eye Institute at the National Institute of Health (NEI/NIH) in Bethesda, MD in November. Children like Orion is right up his alley. I'm bringing this video, too. I am very curious about what he will say.
