Rylee Jo got the first pair of glasses in our family. We've noticed for a long time that sometimes her right eye crosses towards her nose. We finally went to an eye doctor that we feel comfortable with and the diagnosis for now is that she's nearsighted. The optometrist explained that crossing eyes are a result of either a focus problem (nearsighted or farsighted) or an eye muscle problem (something you're born with). Because of her past medical history and surgery, there is a possibility that her eye crosses more because of a muscle problem. But an eye surgeon won't look at a patient until glasses are tried out. So here we are, wearing glasses. She'll be wearing these for the next month or so, and then be re-tested and go from there.
She LOVES her glasses (so far). She LOVES that they're pink! When I told her this morning that we were going to go pick up her new, pink glasses, she was soooo excited! She ran into her room after her bath and said, "I want to wear pink to match my new, pink glasses!". She's do darn cute!
