Whelp. The Mouse got himself some glasses.
A month or so ago the Mouse started having himself some pretty bad headaches. When we took him to the doctor, they were diagnosed as ‘cluster headaches’, but it was also suggested that we have his eyes checked out as well. Sure enough, the Mouse has astigmatism (which runs pretty rampantly on both sides of our family, even though neither the Husband or I have it). Our optometrist described his vision as being able to see some things fine, but others being completely distorted – a wavy line that runs through your vision messing with some things you see in your line of sight, and leaving some just fine.
No wonder the poor dude was having headaches.
The doctor couldn’t promise that his headaches will go away 100%, but said that he’ll be able to see things and concentrate much better, which should have a major impact – so here’s hoping. Time will also tell how well the Mouse takes to his new accessory … I have a feeling his excitement over ‘getting’ to wear glasses will probably be pretty short-lived.
So, that said, if your kiddo wears glasses – what are some tips you would give on how to help your kiddo adjust to wearing them, and also taking care of them? I’m so glad these have a warranty; I’m convinced we’ll be back at the optometrist’s office next week to have something fixed.
