Ok I am feeling kind of down I know it's not that bad but my dd is 6 yrs. old and she might be needing glasses :(
I started wearing glasses when I was 7 ...lord knows if I needed them before then.
Anyway my dh is being a butt about this first he says no she don't need glasses and I told him if she needs them she needs them. The school nurse checked her eyes and said she is going to need glasses (she tested her 3 times already) and when I took her to the eye doctor she said she does have alttile farsightedness and alittle astigmatism...I am like oh great :(
I hoped she wouldn't need them but if it will help her with her school work that is fine by me.
How do you feel if your child needed glasses???

My child does need them and has them, two of my children do. I feel if they need them you should get them. Why would you not? I feel bad because I didn't have my older son checked sooner. He got his glasses at age five. His vision was horrible. So after I took him I made an appointment right away for my other son who was two. Guess what? He needed glasses. I also have been taking my DD since she was six months. So far she is good. I take all of them to a pediatric Ophthalmologist. I would recommend parents taking their children to one instead of an optometrist.

I'm the one who said it, not other people. That's just my opinion. An optometrist does not do the same as an Ophthalmologist.
An Optometrist is not an M.D. , they are not medically trained. After my kids see their Ophthalmologist they will then go to the Optometrist in the same office or we can choose to go elsewhere for their glasses. An Ophthalmologist is more likely to find medical issues because they have the equipment to do so.
