At breakfast... As usual these two eat at snails pace and need to be hurried.
SE: If I eat fast and Jo Ern eat slow, then you leave Jo Ern at home.
SE: If Jo Ern eat fast and I eat slow, you cannot leave me at home. Because *I* are going to the eye doctor.
And slightly later...
SE: Today you cannot leave me at home. Because the one going to the eye doctor is me, me, ME.
She must have been feeling 'special' haha.
Selfie! (Notice the one closed eye)
It was a long wait and when we finally got in, SE happily clambered onto the 'patient' chair. The doct checked and said hmm.... the power is very high. Oh-oh. Asked for eye drops to be put first so he could check properly.
And this is a small problem began...
No! Don't want! Pain-pain!!
The drops must have stung. The process had to be repeated twice, after 10mins or so each time, as not enough drop went in the first two times.
No!! Noo! Noooooo!
The result? SE has far-sightedness or hyperopia, where images form behind the retina instead of on it. The doctor was surprised how high her power was - about 600. He gave an eyeglasses prescription for 400/450. As expected the 'lazy' eye is the one with the higher power. He said it's good that we brought her in now, as later she would have developed a squint.
I know there are worst things, but right now I'm upset. Glasses would make life tough for a little girl who loves to play, squirm, cuddle, be carried, kiss and hug people non-stop. Glasses would absolutely get in the way all the time. And I'm also thinking of trivial matters like how SE wouldn't look sweet and cute in photos any more. :(
(JE just asked to go swimming tomorrow. And I'm thinking oh, SE would need powered goggles now? *bawll*)
