Kiddo needs glasses

 DD has been recently complaining about not being able to see the board when she's sitting in class, so I made her an eye doctor appt at Costco on Saturday morning. The doctor was really nice, and while we were waiting to see the doctor, they got some of her other eye testing done, so that was nice. Anyways, they did confirm that she has trouble seeing far away, and gave her a prescription, so she got to pick out a pair of glasses, which she was actually excited about lol she picked out a pair of "nerd glasses" which are apparently cool right now.

Now, since I didn't go with somebody within my insurance network, I have to submit my reciepts and get reimbursed, so we'll see how quickly that goes lol I'm mailing in my paperwork today, so let's hope for no issues!

 With our insurance, that's the only way to do it.  It's a pain but hopefully, it will be processed quickly for you.

Good luck on getting reimbursed and I'm glad your DD likes her glasses!  My oldest just got new glasses around Christmas and really likes them.  He wanted to try contacts, but he just can't get the darn things in his eyes.

 I told her we would not even discuss contacts until she can prove she will take care of her glasses

Oh absolutely.  Same here.  He has had his glasses since he was 10 and he is now 13.  We've only had to replace them once and they were just plain getting old.  :)

Good luck with reimbursement!  I'm glad she got glasses.  I remember at 8 or 9 I had such horrible headaches caused by really bad vision.  And to make it worse, we were on welfare, so I got the welfare glasses.  Ew.
