We took Luca to the eye doctor for the first time today and she picked out two pair of glasses.
As I sat and watched her struggle to read the top line of the chart with her left eye I felt like an idiot for missing the signs.
She had fairly frequent headaches that I attributed to diet or fatigue.
She has been “winking” frequently with one eye. Now I can see that she wasn’t winking, but she was squinting so she could see better with her other eye.
I am grateful her school nurse does eye tests with the kids and that they suggested to us that she get and eye exam.
I think she will be amazed at the world when we pick up her glasses next week.
I still remember asking my mom, “what are all those white dots in the sky?” after picking up my first pair of glasses when I was eight years old.
“Those are stars, honey.”
