Sam has been going to the ophthalmologist every year now that he's been on steroids to check for cataracts. Our issue now is scheduling. The nearest place for him to go is a good 45 minutes away. Then the appointments are all during school hours. Has anyone just seen an optometrist for this? The rest of us see one just down the road, and he has after school appointment times. I really hate taking Sam out of school any more than absolutely necessary.
