Have you ever seen a little kid wearing glasses? They look pretty cute right? Well if you haven’t heard on Twitter or Facebook, my little baby girl has gotten her first pair of glasses this week.
For a little while I’ve thought that her left eye turned in, mostly when she was tired but it was getting more obvious. So off we went to the Paediatric Ophthalmologist late last month.
It turns out that little Miss J is long sighted & as a result it’s causing both of her eyes to turn in. The left is quite obvious & the focus on it is worse than the right, but the right isn’t quite perfect either. I’ll show you a pic so you can see…
See how her right eye is looking straight ahead but her left eye is turning slightly in? That’s the problem. So now our baby girl has to wear glasses. This is not a big deal to me, her daddy & I both wear glasses so it’s just one of those things.
We picked them up on Monday & it was a struggle to get her to put them on at first, but now even after only a few days it’s second nature. All we have to do now is stop her from putting her fingers all over them!
See I told you they were cute!!
The next step is going back to the Ophthalmologist at the end of April to see if there’s been any improvement. Dependent on the results of that she made need to have her good eye patched so her bad eye can get stronger. This part I’m scared about, Miss J won’t even keep a bandaid on for five minutes how will we go with a patch?!
