You may recall that Laura started wearing glasses last fall. Not only did her eyes need some correction, but she has strabismus much like her brother so keeping her eye from turning in is part of her prescription as well. Last week we went for a check up expecting for everything to be fine. But no. It seems that, as is common with some kids with strabismus, the weak eye has decided not to do anything and the stronger eye has taken over. Her vision in her good eye tested at 20/40 and her bad eye was 2100! So began a long term effort with patching a few hours a day. Currently she does 3 hours a day. It fits over her glasses and is working once we put a kibosh on her desire to peek over the top of the patch by moving her glasses down a bit.
Here she is in all of her glory:
And here she is expressing her feelings about having to wear it.
