Boo saw the eye doc today and my expectations were unfortunately verified. Along with CVI he has significant degeneration of both optic nerves. The doc said to keep trying visual therapy but if Boo doesn't want to use what vision he may have not to push it. We are basically working on the theory that he sees some light only. Anyone with experience? Suggestions? Karen

Sorry your suspicions were confirmed. Do you have a trained vision therapist working with him? We used a therapist from the School for The Blind in Pittsburgh and she was making alot of improvement with Joseph's issues. (he has a very short optic nerve (very nearsighted) and his eyes like to cross and/or "float" when he is not really concentrating on making them focus.)
Hope you can get some more information and help him want to use his vision.
