New Glasses {Ordinary Moments 9/4/17}

I remember so vividly the day J first got her glasses, after months of chasing the health visitor and orthoptics reviews it was finally confirmed that she needed them and at 2 years and 2 months old she received her first pair. When she was being tested they put a pair of glasses on her with a lens blacked out and her eyesight was so bad she struggled to make out what the images in front of her were. I remember having to leave the room in tears as I couldn’t believe how bad it was and I couldn’t bear to see her struggling

Fast forward 2 years and she is hardly seen without them, she understands just how important they are to her eyesight and to help her take in the world around her even though they hide much of her big beautiful blue eyes

She wears patches on an almost daily basis to try and correct her squint, and whilst she will always wear glasses our hope is that the level at which she needs them improves to help her as she gets older. She aced the test this time round and they have commented that she has improved considerably in the 2 years she’s been wearing them, although there’s still a long way to go

Every year she receives a new pair of glasses with a new prescription and this week we picked up her new ones (with the added bonus of prescription sunglasses to help her in the summer months and for our upcoming trip to Florida). I absolutely adored the pair she has worn this past year so was apprehensive about these ones, as the hubster had chosen them with her while I wasn’t about – as long as she likes them that’s the important thing

She was so excited to have Repunzel on her purple prescription ones and Ariel on her green sunglasses, and has since spent most of her spare time in the car cleaning them when she’s not playing with the case. Another year, another pair of glasses for my girl.

    they’re both gorgeous pairs – Kitty has had those Rapenzel ones in the past, thought she’s grown out of the disney princess range now (alas) so our days of alternating princesses are over. And I know what you mean about worrying about the new pair – John had to take Kitty to choose last time and even though they face timed me so I could see them, I’m always so nervous about them looking good – a childhood in the 80’s NHS frames will do that to you! I’m glad her eyesight is improving in the way it needs to too 🙂

      She desperately looked for Troll ones but they didn’t have any. I am totally with you having spent most of my childhood in the ghastly NHS frames and thick lenses – it must be a mum thing wanting to see them chosen on FaceTime!

    Oh bless her. I have worn glasses since I was a toddler after having an operation to correct a squint at 18 months. I had to have a patch over my good eye and it was such hard work, I remember how I felt at the time but I am so glad I worked through all of that as my eye sight is pretty good now. Glasses really suit your daughter and she looks so happy in them! x

    Oh bless her with her prescription sunglasses! I rely heavily on mine – I probably wear them more than my normal glasses truth be told.
