We just enjoyed a wonderful trip to Disney World and Universal Studios! When we first arrived in the Magic Kingdom, Little AoA said, “This is the first time I am REALLY seeing it!”
“What do you mean?” I asked. “We have been here a few times now.”
“This is the first time since I’ve had my glasses!” Little AoA exclaimed.
I hadn’t really thought of it until then. Little AoA just got her glasses this year, and has a prescription that is pretty strong (much stronger than mine!). There is no telling how long she has had vision difficulties. We suspected that there were problems when she couldn’t navigate things that required depth perception. At that time, she couldn’t really participate fully in vision screenings due to her language difficulties.
She loves her glasses! I never have to remind her to wear them, which I wondered about when she first got them.
We just never know!
I found this news clip about young children and glasses. I wish I had known about this sooner!
