Glasses for Squeaky!

Well, after a long three hour apt at the opthomologist in Grand Rapids the verdict is in. Caroline needs to wear glasses. She is extremly farsighted in both eyes and as a result can't see that well. Her left eye is also lazy, which anyone who sees her in person knows all too well. He reassured me again that she doesn't have any tumors, retinoblastoma or otherwise! Yipee! He and his staff were so GREAT! Very prepared for my busy little girl. She had really had it by the time she actually saw the opthomologist but he made sure he got a very good look at her eyes, despite her constant screaming and protests. After waiting three plus months for the apt, I was glad that they were persistant in getting a good look. I picked out a cute pink pair for her. She was fussing when they put them on her but from what I saw they looked cute. I will post a picture when we get them!

My hubby had the same thing at Caroline's age. He had the lazy eye too, only he had to wear a patch over that eye. Now, he is glasses-free...he had lasik eye surgery done 3 years ago!

I will be thinking of you as you try to get those glasses to stay on her. I am sure that will take her some time to get used to...but then maybe not. She may be happy that she can FINALLY see! :)

I can't wait to see a picture of her...she will be a cutie!
