Glasses or contacts can be a quick, easy fix for children with vision problems, but in kids with brain disorders, it is a different story.
Contacts are impractical for these kids and they often will not or can not, keep glasses on their face.
Instead of leaving kids in the dark, a St. Louis doctor is offering vision correction surgery.
It is an option that is not even FDA approved for kids who do not have disabilities.
Doctor Tychsen does Lasik, lens implants, and lens exchange surgery, where the lens is replaced with an artificial one.
Patrick had a lens exchange and his vision went from 20-2000 to 20-90.
That is more than a tenfold improvement.
