Cassie's New Look

Doesn't she look adorable? She has been saying for a couple of months now that her eyes are 'kind of foggy' when she looks at things. At first, I wasn't sure if she meant it, because she didn't really act as though she was having trouble seeing. However, I called to make the appointment when I noticed she would stand right next to the tv to watch and still said her eyes were foggy when she tried to look at things.

We had the appointment yesterday. Lino went into the exam room with her. Apparently she has astigmatism in both eyes, and she is farsighted. She was very brave when the doctor put the drops in her eyes, and patient while we waited for them to work. The doctor told Lino that the prescription she gave her isn't full strength, I guess that if she gave her the full strength, it would be too much for her eyes. So we go back in three months to recheck.

We were all very excited that they had those pink frames. They are perfect for her. She wasn't sad at all about needing glasses, and picked that shirt today because it matched her frames!

Beyond cute! You look fabulous Cassie!! Delphina and I went to the eye doctor today for her first time! She also has astigmatism in both eyes, but barely, so we just need to keep an eye on it. I am so glad you found something so pretty to wear, and that you were so brave!

Glasses are great, especially when stuff suddenly becomes clear after being fuzzy for so long--two of my boys would tell you that. :) Very cute glasses, very cute girl with such a happy smile!
