Now I know kiddiewink 3 is very far sighted, I just want to know how far sighted we are actually talking. +11 without drops so possibly even higher than that! I just keep looking at her and feeling sorry for her that she can’t see properly! She has been a bit of an unhappy bunny this last week; teething again I think, but I do keep thinking is it her eyes too (only now I know there is a problem). I am the type that once I know something,I just want to move forward and sort it, to say I am ‘doing the hubby’s head in’ is putting it mildly, I can’t stop talking about it and just want to know now and have her glasses NOW!
Despite not realising she couldn’t see clearly, now I know I am seeing signs. Whether they are only just happening, or whether it is my heightened awareness I am not sure. But Now when I watch her playing with her toys, I watch her eyes intently and I they do indeed go a little cross eyed the closer the toy gets to the face. She also rubs her eyes a lot -which can also be a sign! Having one kiddie wink in glasses already I thought I was paranoid and on one occasion prior to her eye test, she did go cross eyed, I even got it on camera. Everyone reassured me that she was just getting used to seeing her thumb when sucking it! I did wonder then, but forgot about it, as she never did it after thwt, she also seems so interested in everything around her. She looks and grabs everything she sees and smiles at everybody.
I am starting to get nervous about tomorrow. What if her eyes are considerably worse than initially suggested? What if there is a bigger problem? How will she find the drops? Will her glasses look daft with milk bottle lenses? Will we get her to keep them on?
Will Wendy even be happy to prescribe her? She was so far sighted she was going to discuss her case with other professionals before she was happy to prescribe her, with her being so tiny, if they are not sure either, we would have to wait for the hospital appointment, I so hope that isn’t the case though, as the it could be 13 weeks.
Keeping everything crossed that tomorrow goes smoothly…
