Randy Kazandy Doesn't Have ADD, He Sees Double!
Randy Kazandy, Where Are Your Glasses? children's picture book brings to life a story of a little boy who was having difficulties in school and playing sports, until they realized he was seeing double.
New York (I-Newswire) August 17, 2013 - Does your child bump into walls, stumble and tumble, and always miss balls? Is your child always the last one picked for school games and activities? "Randy Kazandy, Where Are Your Glasses?," children's award-winning picture book, saves the day for a California mother. After reading the book out loud with her son Bryce, she realized she had a Randy Kazandy living right in her house. He displayed all the symptoms that Randy had in the book, so she made an eye appointment the very next day. After years of Bryce never sitting still in the classroom, getting up and walking around, he was diagnosed with ADD.
Bryce's mom took him to many specialists and not one recommended an eye exam. They conducted a battery of tests. The possible diagnoses mounted: autism spectrum disorder, neurofibromatosis, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, anxiety disorder.
A behavioral pediatrician prescribed three drugs for attention deficit and depression. The only sure thing was that Bryce, now 8, did anything he could to avoid reading and writing.
Bryce was tested each year in school but they were the wrong kind of test. His vision was 20/20, a school reading specialist finally suggested one last testing for Bryce. Take him to an Ophthalmologist to be sure. .And this time the ophthalmologist did what no one else had: He put his finger on Bryce's nose and moved it in and out. His eyes jumped all over the place. Surprisingly Bryce did not have ADD at all.
Within minutes he had the diagnosis: convergence insufficiency, in which the patient sees double because the eyes cannot work together at close range.
Experts estimate that 8 percent of school-age children have convergence insufficiency. They can suffer headaches, dizziness and nausea, which can lead to irritability, low self-esteem and inability to concentrate.
Doctors and teachers often attribute the behavior to attention disorders or seek other medical explanations. Checking a child's vision is vital when they do poorly in school or in other activities. Bryce finally told his mother he kept walking around the classroom to get closer to the chalkboard to see what the teacher was writing. He was happy he did not have ADD, stopped his medications and was happy the doctor gave him a diagnosis. Bryce after treatment, is now an A student, happy and thriving.
