Day 119: Myopic Creep

Nope, that's not an episode title of a Scooby-Doo mystery. It's something we're on the lookout for concerning my daughter's eyes.

Today she had an eye exam, and it tuns out she needs a bit more correction, which isn't a big deal. But it's something to watch. If, by the time she's eight, and each year her prescription needs to get stronger and stronger, we may need to do something therapeutic for her eyes to prevent myopic creep.

In the meantime, we were able to pick out some cute new glasses, and I am so thankful that we were able to get them for her and that I had the experience to measure her pupil distance. Norah thought that was pretty cool having her own mom step behind the counter and measure her eyes instead of my nice co-worker doing it (because to her, he's scary!).

She's been looking at herself all day since getting her glasses, in every reflection she can find. She feels so special today. In fact, she didn't even hesitate posing for her picture:

I told her to "strike a pose", and I think she went for "The Myopic Creep!" Oh this girl! She's a hoot!

Lord, thank you for my spunky little girl! Thank you for your provision in caring for her eyes, and thank you for access to a doctor who can examine her eyes so that she can take in all that you have created around her! May her eyes always seek to see your glory!
