So we went to see our local optometrist yesterday. Deanna had been complaining for a while that she should go and one day I noticed she holds a book really close to her face when she is reading, so it was time to go get her eyes checked (and Jordan’s too just for good measure).
Jordan has his father’s vision… he can see like a hawk. He still has trouble with color hue distinction so the optometrist advised Jordan to never become an artist. ;oP
Deanna on the other hand has inherited my vision. She has astigmatism and near sightedness. Her right eye is worse then her left eye. So I joked with her that she will have to get a pair of “Sawyer glasses” (a character from the TV show LOST).
She didn’t seem to like this idea too much. LOL!
While I was in with Jordan during his test, she picked out a pair of cute purple glasses. Her glasses should be available for pick up in 7-10 days, so she should be seeing fine in no time. She may even enjoy reading more if she isn’t struggling so much to see.
She is very excited to get glasses. I should have taken a picture of her in them but none of us thought about it till we were driving home. Oh well. :o)
