We have officially been patching for 5 years! WOW! Such a crazy thought! I did the math this week and we have done over 9 thousand hours of patching!!!!! WOAH!


I think that is something to celebrate don’t you!?! We have had easy patch days and hard patch days. We have been patching 6 or so hours a day since he was 4 weeks old! It really has helped his vision and I am so grateful for that. Its taken a lot of hard work, learning and LOTS OF BRIBERY!

    I hope you know how much your creativity with your little guy has helped other kiddos out there. Your shirts, coloring pages. Christmas ornaments, and patches have truly made my son’s daily patching (over 3 years now) so much easier!! Thank you!! :)

    5 years of patching?! That’s awesome! My recent 4 year old have been patching for about 5 months. Some days he patches so well, while others he is ripping it off every chance he gets! Love to show him pictures from this site so he can see other children who patch just like him!

  • Joannie says:

    We have been patching for 2 years now. Some days are easy and others a battle. Can get him to patch with distractions like and iPad, candy, or an outing. Thanks for your inspiration and consistency!
