Was today. His visual field from side to side was 80 degrees. He needs 120 degrees to be able to drive. He has colobomas in both eyes. In his right eye all structures. In his left he has a coloboma on the retina. Before this test the Doctor always assured us he will be able to drive. The doctor seemed surprised by the results. He is sending us for a second opinion. But I think it was only to give my son hope and so he himself didn't have to deal with the disappointment that was beginning to show in my sons eyes. My son was supposed to get his learners next month.... My son can't imagine living with out a car just now. We live in a very rural area with little public transportation. ... It has been such a hard spring for him. He was hit by a car while running during training. He was bruised but OK. Well he became fearful of running on the roads (who can blame him). He was also knocked out of his kayak during an important trial. He was trying to get around of a corner... couldn't see the boat beside him and he was flipped in by the other paddler. No allowance has ever been made for his eyesight issues. Then a few weeks ago he said he no longer wanted to paddle, and he wanted to focus on his music and DJing and composing. We understood of course... both interests were full time endeavors and he had to choose which to focus on...(in addition to school). And now this. All his friends are either all ready driving or will be soon. He is so devastated.
