I took Elizabeth to an eye specialist today. We've had to put drops in her eyes for the past 3 days to dilate them, since the usual kind only works for children age 5+. (Come to find out that it will take a week or so for her eyes to go back to normal. NOOOOOOOOO....) So, here's the scoop.
Elizabeth is getting glasses! She is +3.25 on the far-sighted scale. (Most kids being at a +1) That makes it difficult for her to focus with both eyes at the same time. The doctor said at a 3 is when you start seeing kids have difficulty focusing. So, her vision isn't too horrible and he seemed pretty confident that the glasses should be able to correct that. And, she could outgrow the need for glasses by her early teens.
Tonight we went to Costco and bought her some Dora the Explorer glasses. They should be ready in 7-10 days. At which time a picture will be posted for all to see. :o)
