    Tre needs glasses now too. His right eye was in definate need and left eye too . It was hard to read him to see if he needed them or not. So glad I took him today . Poor kid . He couldn't believe the difference with glasses.

    So now 2 kids to keep track of glasses. Yikes!

    Yikes is right! I was actually going to post and see if anyone had advice about glasses, DD has been complaining of headaches and saying her eyes are "cloudy" on and off for the last few weeks - so I think I'm going to take her for an eye exam just to be sure. Do you just go to the regular eye doctor or are there pediatric types out there?

    We got go to an optometrist. Every one in our family sees him. When my DD had her accident we did see a pediatric optometrist but only because we were at a pedi hospital. Her care was eventually turned over to our current dr.

    Only my oldest has to wear glasses. It makes such a difference.

    We go to an optometrist as well. I have been going to her for many, many years.
    I am still pretty surprised Tre needs glasses too. He really adjusted to having such blurry vision in the one eye.
    Now he is super excited. But they said it takes about 2 wks for the glasses to come in.

    DD went yesterday to the optometrist and we are told she is far sighted. She picked out the pinkest glasses she could find. The case is a little pink purse that says "Princess" on the side. It's ridiculous.
