Once she mentioned her problems with blurriness I knew it would mean she would end up being a Kindergartner with glasses, just like her mom was!
So after she said she was having trouble seeing I told her we would have to get her in to the eye doctor and have her tested - and that she'd probably get glasses. Well ever since that day she was so excited to get glasses! She would ask me if I'd made the appointment right when she got home from school. It took me awhile because I wanted her to take the eye exam at school first to make sure, and the school nurse was out of town for 2 weeks. Once she took that test and failed the distance portion I made the appointment with Dr. Sparks. She was so happy!
She only has to wear them for seeing things 6 feet or more away. I'm going to try and be strict with that because if she wears them more than she needs she might get worse faster. (The eye doctor said she'll probably get worse as often as I did and that was once a year for a long time...)
I have to mention that a couple of weeks ago Kevin and I took her to a highschool production of Bye Bye Birdie (one of my all time favorite movies) and she said to us:
THE GLASSES ARE SO TINY!
