New Glasses10:29 PM
The Doctor diagnosed her with Accommodative Esotropia, which is basically a focusing problem. All kids are farsighted to a point but C's problem is she has to focus extra and it makes her eye cross. Her glasses do not improve her farsightedness but rather the glasses do the focusing so her eye muscles remain straight. It is something that kids typically out grow by the time they are 10-12 so we are keeping our fingers crossed she won't need her glasses for her whole life.
When I got the news she would need glasses I immediately thought to get her some super cute frames. Luckily the lady in the frame shop steered me in the right direction. She said that they usually sell kids under three some flex frames. To say I was disappointed would be an understatement. Her frames are a rubberized flexible frame that bend and flex and take a beating that a three year old will dish out. (On Monday after we picked them up she wasn't wearing them and I asked her where they were. Come to find out she had them around her waist! I told her they weren't a belt and they needed to stay on her face). The glasses also have a head band to help keep them on her face. Plus these frames actually fit her small face a lot better.
And all the cool kids are wearing glasses!
