Spec*tacular

05/03/2013

My littlest has always been the one with ants in her pants. Never a quiet moment (or dull one:) with her around. I always wondered if she would ever be able to sit still, and concentrate for longer than 5 minutes at a time. When she turned 4 we went for the usual check up, including an eye test. She couldn't see a thing (astigmatism). I cried my eyes out, as I felt so bad that my baby couldn't see for 4 years. She was quick to pick up on it, and told us she couldnt help tidy up as she clearly couldn't see. Smart. Well yesterday we got her glasses, and the little lady was all smiles. She even got herself a pet dog, with glasses too. The future looks bright - and now she can see it.







Have any of you got experience with children and eyeglasses? Perhaps you even had glasses yourself as a child?

My instagram & FB friends - sorry if you have seen these images already:)

  2. Hi!!! I am an optician myself. I am not practicing but when I used to, we used to show kids fun people with glasses. Like Harry Potter. The idea is not to go directly and tell them....just make it natural. Casually let books or magazines of people that she admires and wear glasses. As well if you also see it yourself as something casual and fun, she will take after you.
    Glasses are an accessory, just like a bag or jewellery, in fact there is actually people who would come to my shop to buy glasses without a prescription. Just transparent glasses for the looks.
    For the summer make sure she has a pair of sunglasses with the prescription she needs. Most parents aren't advised that you can actually buy the pair of sunglasses you love and order lenses with the prescription. Basically custom made the lenses for your needs. I hope this makes sense, English is not my first language.
    It is awfull to see a kid playing in the bright sun with her daily glasses.
    Another tip, if you can afford another pair to have at home, do it. You never know when she is going to loose them, brake them or missplaced them. Anyway, I don't want to bored you. If you need anything, you know where to find me. I am really happy to help ;-)
    I LOVE HER IN GLASSES, and the dog!!! THAT is exactly the way to go.
    Happy day, Eliana

  4. Won't even mention to them that your girl got the so-much-wanted-glasses ahahahah
    They both asked for it but were, Praise the Lord, blessed with good eyesight. They need braces in their teeth, though; oldest used it for centuries [try explain a teen that he’ll have a better smile than Tom Cruise :drama, drama, drama:] and she had hers put last Christmas and will use them for a long time :) [you might have noticed that Bieber doesn’t date girls with braces ;) ahahah just saying as it will help you ahead (glasses are ok, braces no)]
    She looks fabulous and I'm sure the little midget tricked you by always compensating the lack of view with an over the roof imagination and attention... I remember her staring at the "big" girls dancing... she wasn't not seeing! At all.
    She looks fabulous, and sweeter, and will be the envy of your grown ups visitors (we never grew up of wishing to have worn glasses ahahaha ;)) who are already googling to know where you came up with the amazing poodle. She looks the Smart Fairy now ahahahah.
    Stop crying and put the rollers (and wings) on... if with bad eyesight she ran, now seeing well and beyond there's no stopping her ahahahah and she still can’t tidy her room, glasses my fall and broken ;).
    Take Care and “you’ll survive MUM”!
    Yours,
    Teresa

  5. I had glasses when I was her age, but only needed them until I was six. I just found out I needed computer glasses about a year ago. and I love them. not wearing them much, tho. I always loved my glasses as a kid. they never bothered me. not that mine were as stylish as hers :)

    1. See I too need computer glasses (alas I do spend an awful lot of time infront of it so no wonder) They said she probably wouldn't grow out of it - so be it - glasses make you see - which rocks:)
      Thanks Petra,

  6. oh anya, this made me cry. i am so happy for her. i could see, but my eyes became very blurry in 1st grade. i couldn't see the board at school. i've been wearing glasses and contacts ever since. it truly makes a difference. her glasses look so cute. we didn't have much of a choice when i was growing up. those dreadful blue ones. i love her little doll. so happy for the both of you.

    1. Thanks Kim, she was a happy little camper - but it did take awhile getting her glasses, she kept running out of the shop, so we had to bribe her to sit still and get fitted ha ha. But these are great and she looks FAB:) Thanks for your sweet comment, sorry I made you cry ;-)

  7. Oh Anya, so sweet. It's okay, she's got the glasses it'a all up hill from here. :) My oldest daughter had to get glasses a year ago. I was surprised as my husband and I didn't have them until we were older, after high school. But, we eventually had lasic eye surgery.

    Things should be fine, she might misplace them from time to time, but other than that I can't think of anything that is too serious to relay. :)

    She looks super cute. What a doll she is.

    Love

    1. Thanks Shauna - we never realized, but now of course - a few things have come to mind, where one should perhaps have questioned it - OH well - she has them now, and she is happy. Today a few people even stopped and said Ahhhhh when they saw her - bless:)
      Love back,
      Axxxx

  11. The thing I remember most about the day I got glasses was the leaves. Suddenly there was no longer this fuzzy green mass on the trees. I could see every single leaf and I was completely awestruck. That feeling has stayed with me for nearly 40 years.

    Wish they'd been cute glasses like these though. No such luck back then :-) She looks fabulous!

    1. That's brilliant Tracy, I don't quite know how she sees yet - she is only 4 and haven't said much - but she keeps them on, so I guess that's a start :)

  12. I remember how exciting everything was when I got my first pair of glasses...everything was so crisp! I had a similar experience when I got contacts -peripheral vision! =)

    BTW- I just saw this adorable shop that's all about kids w/glasses mentioned on a German blog and thought you might be interested: http://www.barnmedbriller.dk/da/shop.html I love the bunnies w/glasses, lol!
