That pirate look

With eyepatch

As Carolyn mentioned, Max now wears a patch over his stronger eye for half an hour each day. Interesting fact: pediatric eyepatches come in gender-specific varieties. The doctor only had patches designed for girls when Max visited, so that's what he wore for the first week. Since then, we've gotten several boxes of patches designed for boys. As you might imagine, the dominant theme is of pirates; the patches sport cutlasses, boats, and the jolly roger. However, first impressions are hard to shake, and I'll always associate these patches with pink unicorns (shown in this picture).
