But, he passed the vision screening at school, so I wasn't in any hurry to get him there.
I thought he just wanted glasses because he has a couple of buddies at school who wear glasses. I even made that comment to a couple of my friends.
I took him to the eye doctor on Monday, and guess what?
He actually needs glasses for reading and schoolwork. He is farsighted, which surprised me because both Mr. Incredible and I are nearsighted. Turns out my dad was farsighted, too, but I never realized that because he always talked about his severe astigmatism instead of the farsightedness. I'm going to have to check with my mother-in-law regarding the far or nearsightedness of Mr. Incredible's side of the family.
Of couse, I sat in the room while Bonus had his exam, and I felt guilty for putting off his appointment when I heard him try to read the line that was three lines above 20/20. He was mixing up "o" with "c" and "c" with "o."
No wonder he has been struggling so much with his school work.
So, now my little man is a four eyed cutie. He picked out his own frames, and I think they look very handsome on him. In the frame-picking process, I learned that my son has impeccable (read: expensive) taste just like his mama.
He is taking pretty good care of his specs, too! Five days later he has only lost them in the house four times... :)
His teacher said she noticed an improvement the very first day he wore them. Poor little buddy. I'm sorry I didn't run straight to the eye doctor.
Unfortunately, he still hates school and begged not to go every morning this week. Do they have a doctor for that?
