We were afraid to find out. But we have always been wondering.
Today, two and a half years after his accident, Pádraig had his first formal eye test which confirmed that he has 20/20 vision on both eyes.
Nobody had ever bothered to do this eye test. Maybe because they though ‘what does it matter?’
Today, we also learned that the NRH does have an orthoptist (like an eye therapist) but no ophthalmologist (eye doctor). The same way it does not have a neurologist.
We had been wondering whether we could ever be happy again after the accident happened. Today we are over the moon!
