and now visually impaired as well....

Isn't she adorable? Already Miss Independent is cleaning her own glasses! She did fabulous, let them blow air into her eyes, she read charts, she let them put three different drops in each eye, and she didn't go go crazy til the last 30 min, on the way home. Did I mention we were gone for six hours, we waited there while they made her glasses. As soon as they were ready, they placed those tiny specs on her face, they told her to turn to the side and look at Mama. Her precious big blue eyes looked up at me thru her lenses and smiled so lovingly and said to me, "Mama, your chin looks like this" and she lowered her face to turn her one chin into three.......she faced my mom (we made Nanny go with us) and told her the same thing. We may be taking these things back! haha, just kidding. They did tell her everything will look big at first....let's hope her eyes adjust quickly! We went with smaller thinner frames since her CIs are already on her ears. We didn't want to overload her little ears and make them sore. So far so good, hope she does well in school. They said she needed them full time.

Isn't it great (and a relief!) when they do really well for an appointment?!

My (hearing impaired) daughter wears glasses as well...it didn't take long at all for them to become part of our 'normal'.

What a cutie pie!

Hopefully she adjusts quickly and continues to be as responsible!

Because both Peep and I wear glasses, I am pretty sure Tayten will be going down this road in the near future. I am looking forward to any posts you may have regarding her CIs and glasses.

Yes, it is tough as a parent to have to put more stuff on your kid's ears. My daughter also had to get glasses. She was having horrible headaches, and we thought it was her shunt. I was envisioning all these horrible problems, and it turns out, she needed glasses. No more headaches. Should've done the eye check first. sigh
