You Said What?!

I took Miriam to have her eyes checked on Wednesday because her teacher mentioned that she was noticing her left eye drifting. We had noticed it in photos but just kind of thought, "Oh it is nothing. May be just her looking away as the camera clicked" but it was happening in most of her pictures.
So, Miriam and I spent 2 ½ hours checking to see what was wrong…
It seems that she is severely Far Sighted and it was causing her left eye to have Intermittent Strabismus (Laziness). The doctor we saw said that she needed to get her glasses immediately and she was to wear them for 3 weeks. After 3 weeks she was to come back, if the glasses alone did not help then we were to try glasses and “Eye Exercises”. If those did not work then she would have to have eye surgery.

Wow, um…ok.

We have her glasses on order and she is so excited. I just hope she wears them. She has to wear them all day until bed. You can all guess what color glasses she chose, right?
This is what happens when you have been in the Dr's office for to long  :)
