Just found out my 5 year old might need glasses?

I have worn glasses since I was 7 years old now my daughter might need them I want to give her a positive attitude about it I don't know how she will react she did tell me she went to the nurse's office to get her vision and hearing checked at school then the nurse called me and told me to go get her checked at our optomitrist office. Any tips I remember when I first got mine I was like wow there is a whole new world out there I could see clearly. I was so amazed.

  • I was the same way. It will be so wonderful to be able to see the world that it should make her excited. My son got his glasses at about age 5 and did well. You may want to get a replacement plan. For us for a certain amount you could get up to 2 or so replacement glasses or free repairs.

  • then tell her that, maybe show her some cartoon characters that wear them, maybe her favorite or something.
