I told you a year ago that W needed glasses, and mentioned that we were having some serious issues getting him to wear them (which we've never resolved). A couple of days ago, I found out why.
I took him to a pediatric ophthalmologist instead of the optometrist we'd been going to because I wasn't super impressed with the optometrist's office. They weren't giving me any real suggestions to help get him to wear his glasses, and kept contradicting themselves, which was frustrating for me. So to a specialist we went.
After the eye exam, the doc told me that W's prescription is almost two points lower than the prescription in his glasses. Which totally explains why the kid doesn't want to wear them! I immediately felt bad for trying to force him into the glasses, but there's nothing I could have done about it. His eyes aren't quite bad enough for any glasses, so he's officially done with glasses! (For now, at least...). We have to watch to make sure he doesn't start crossing his eyes, and go back every six months for check ups, but I can live with that.
So I'm no longer going to have a nerdlet. Bye bye glasses...
