Good news about Hope's peepers: They're not as bad as we thought.
We had her six-month check-up with her opthamologist, Dr. What-did-you-say-Sonny?, on Monday and apparently Hope's vision has IMPROVED. He said that as the eye develops, that can happen. I'm not sure if it's that or the tests aren't that accurate. Basically, they dilated Hope's pupils with drops that also paralyzed her focusing ability. Dr. What-did-you-say-Sonny? then flashed a small light into each eye while holding a lens of different prescriptions into each eye. I wasn't quite clear on his explanation but he said when something-or-other is neutral, he can determine what prescription Hope needs.
Regardless, according to the testing Monday, Hope is nearsighted and is -4 in both eyes, which is about the same as my prescription (she was -6.5 the last time we saw him). Anyhow, I'm going to make an appointment with an eye place today to get her glasses.
I have a feeling that getting Hope's glasses will be the easy part. Getting her to actually WEAR them on a daily basis will be a whole different story.
