milo's eyes

milo has something called cortical vision impairment (cvi), which basiclly means that his eyes work normally but the special vision center of his brain does not...due to the damage he suffered when he was born. i put a link to an article about cvi if you want to know more about it. so as of right now he is pretty much blind. the only thing he really responds to visually is light. one of the good things about the fact that it's cvi as opposed to other types of blindness is that vision tends to improve as the child grows older and the brain develops, so milo is going to start vision therapy....and hopefully with time he will begin to see better.
