Foto Friday- Popeye

You know how Popeye always has his right eye squinched shut?


My little Mister does the same thing, ANY time bright lights (camera flashes, sunlight) hit his eyes…

I can’t tell you how many pairs of toddler sunglasses he’s gone through!  Photosensitivity is common with ectodermal dysplasias, and it just so happens that the eye that he clenches shut to light is the eye that was banded at birth.  I’m not sure if there is any correlation between the two, but it is also interesting to note that I clench the same eye shut when exposed to bright lights.  Like mother, like son, right?
