Thank you for your query.

It is very unfortunate that vision in your son's right eye is limited to perception of shape. It is very difficult to comment on the left eye without examination. However your concerns are well justified and I will suggest that you get him examined by an ophthalmolgist to clear all your doubts. Secondly, ensure that he has is eyes checked at regular intervals.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your son all the best.
