A few weeks ago, I took Avery to an ophthalmologist because her right eye would cross in towards her nose when she would look at things up close. She did so great at this appointment (I took her back in September and it was meltdown city. I don't think he was able to get an accurate look at her eyes because she was crying/kicking/screaming so much). This time, she didn't cry at all and even spoke when they asked her what the pictures on the wall were. I was so impressed!
It was determined that she has accommodative esotropia-- basically, she's slightly far-sighted and over focuses when she looks at things up close, which causes her right eye to cross in. To correct this, glasses are needed. So after the appointment, we went down to the optical center to check out our options. Avery had fun trying on different types of glasses, but she knew immediately which ones she wanted...
They came in about a week later and she has done so great with them! She doesn't fight me about putting them on. Once they're on, she leaves them on. And best of all, I haven't noticed her eye crossing in when she wears them, which is so good! I'm so glad she likes them and they seem to be helping!
Oh, and I did not think she could get any cuter, but she has proven me wrong :)
