Having kids seems to give me the opportunity for a lot of firsts, some good, some not so good! The first time I had to tell someone over the phone there was baby puke on my wall, I sat there for a minute and thought, never thought that would be something I would have said 5 years ago! Anyways with those crazy moments come some good ones that make a big difference in your families lives.
In October my middle daughter came home from school to inform me that she was having trouble seeing the board. Now if you know my daughter this could mean a few things! There could be someone in her way and doesn’t want to ask them to move or she could no longer sit next to a friend in class and she needs “to move” to see better. So I went through my normal questions of what do you mean you can’t see the board? She then said the board looked blurry. Knowing that she had a eye exam coming that week at school I told her to let’s get the results of your vision screening at school and see what they say! Sure enough the next day I was notified that my middle daughter had failed not once, not twice but three times! I then scheduled her visit with the pediatrician to only find out that in deed she would need GLASSES!!
Now for my oldest daughter this would have been a dream come true! She has been asking for glasses for over a year now, so they could match her outfits- even though she doesn’t need them! Never thought it was uncool to have perfect vision! So she is settling for the non-prescription kind from Claire’s! For my middle daughter this means extra responsibility, teasing, names and loosing friends, according to her! She tends to be a little over dramatic when it comes to new things! Any who, after several weeks of begging and pleading that she will look great no matter what she is wearing!
After a visit to the Optometrist, I got her prescription and all the measurements that were needed and headed to GlassesUSA.com to order my daughter’s first pair of eyeglasses. Never having glasses myself, these numbers and measurements were like a foreign language to me. I did rely on others, who wear glasses, and the tools available on GlassesUSA to get just the right glasses. With so many choices, I needed all the help I could get.
I first decided on what style frame she wanted by the ones she tried on at the doctors office, this gave me a great starting point. I then took the measurements of the bridge, temple, width, height and total width to figure out what size would fit best. After looking through many different styles, colors and frames, she narrowed it down to about 15 choices we then headed to GlassesUSA.com Virtual Try It Mirror! This is an amazing feature that you can upload a picture of yourself and try on the frames you like! Check out to see if they look good, the shape is right for your face and it’s just neat to see what you look like with each pair before you buy!
