I was watching Good Morning America this morning and was so excited to see a story about a famous person with nystagmus. I've never heard of any famous people that have nystagmus, but apprarently Apl.de.ap, a singer in the group The Black Eyed Peas, has it. This story was about a surgery to implant lenses in his eyes to help his eyesight. People with nystagmus can still have eyesight issues with contacts or glasses because their eyes continue to move, but the lenses do not. However, this guy had a surgery to implant lenses in his eyes that would move with his eyes.
Connor has good eyesight right now, but as he gets older, it may worsen, not from the nystagmus, but from his genes from me. However, with nystagmus, glasses may not help as much as they would someone else. This article about this surgery gives me hope of options that will be available for him as he gets older. I also like to see someone famous with the condition who has done really well for himself!
