Glasses were great…for a day!

When we first got the glasses, Hope wore them to school the next day and her teacher noticed a big difference in her behavior. She normally doesn’t play with the kids in her class, but on the day she had her glasses she was walking right up to kids and playing with them. She was also acting more confident and when they called her from across the room she would walk right over, as opposed to feeling her way over. We were all so excited, but since then we’ve been back on hold because the glasses broke that night. We took them in for repair the next day, and then they broke again an hour later. We just took them in again, and this time they have been sent back to the lab so they can try make the lenses sit in the frame better. So we wait… again… 🙂

It was really sad too because when Hope first realized her glasses were broken she had a huge crying fit, so we know that she likes them, so we are just hoping that the next time she can actually wear them for many days at a time so we can so if we notice some gradual improvements.

    Check out Acer’s glasses – rec specs, they’re designed to take basket ball to the face hits. You might need them!

    Wow. But at least you know they made a difference and she wants to leave them on. That’s half the battle.
    My son cried because he had to wear them.
    what a doll baby. Is she understanding what you say more? And is she trying to talk more?

    Kim, this is amazing! So sorry they broke! ;-( It’s probably super expensive to get a second pair? Bless you, Alida
