Eye Appointment...

 On Monday I went to the eye doctor for a recheck of my strabismus. 

I have been wearing a patch on my right eye (dominant eye) for 1-2 hours every morning the past 8 months. In addition, I was also given a stronger prescription for my eye glasses at that time, too. 

Since the very beginning when I first saw Dr. W, I have made amazing progress. The vision in my weak eye has gone from 20/600 to 20/30. 

At my last appointment 4 months ago, it was 20/60. She was most pleased with the progress I've been making. In fact, I do not have to go back for another 5 months. 

Mom and Dad told me they are so very proud of the work I've been doing to improve my vision. I love wearing my glasses and ask for them first thing in the morning. If they did not fog up, I'd wear them in the tub, too!

Plus, it's just nice to be able to see. We are all most grateful for modern technology, medicine, and divine intervention, too. All things that have made it possible.

I can only imagine how difficult it would be to keep track of such a detail as eyeglasses with a three year old. Your parents have lots of reasons to be proud of you!!
