Visit to the optician

It has been a year since SE got her eye-glasses.  There has been multiple incidences of the nosepad coming off - this pair that she chose has a unique nosepad which is rather fragile.  It doesn't help that she also fiddles with the thing.  And lately she's been chewing on the ear-piece too.  Sigh.

Had to make a trip to the optician to get a new frame.  Check the power first...

JE: I want specs too!

For the first time, she also went for the 'manual testing' where they ask you to read from the eye chart.  Hmm I've always been hoping SE's power would reduce.  No change at all this time.  Oh well, at least it didn't get worse.  And confirmed that her current specs power is good for now.

This JE really wanted to start wearing eye-glasses too (sigh).  Checked her eyes as well...

 
Check and see

JE had a power of 0.25 in both eyes.  Hmm too low to need glasses I think.  So we just got another frame for SE (she chose the exact same ones she has now) and that was it.

  1. It is good to have regular eye check up. Specs are rather expensive these days.

    1. Specs are so troublesome, sigh. Guess I have to been grateful that SE adapted pretty well to having them.

  2. Chew on the ear piece!? Ewwwww! Tell her that there are bugs (bacteria) living there that will give her a tummy ache. As for JE just buy a spectacles frame without glasses from daiso for her to wear so that she will know that it is not a good feeling to be wearing specs and will take good care of her eyes.

    1. It's hard to stop SE from doing what she wants haha. Think a 'dummy' specs won't be the same for JE.
