Little Four-Eyes

The most common vision problems in school-age children are that they’re having a hard time seeing the blackboard.

When Sarah was in Standard One, there were times she will copy the wrong words from school; teacher suspected Sarah is nearsighted and therefore we brought her for a comprehensive check up.

After examination, it was confirmed by the eye care specialist that she has mild myopia and a slight “lazy eye”. Sarah was advised to wear glasses when in class, and also limit the usage of electronic devices.

The next thing we do was to buy her suitable glasses; and she get to pick the lens shape and her favorite color frame too.



Sarah did not feel awkward with her spec, instead she was amused by the new accessory. We keep reminding her to handle with care and so far she’s doing a good job.

The next annually vision screening will be due this August; we just hope that the degrees won’t shoot up high.

Pink for the girl. My girl did not choose pink which is her favourite colour. She had her eyes checked in February. Maybe need to go back in few months time to see any improvement or not. Hope no increase in degree but with all those exposure to tv, pc and ipad, hard for kids not to have bad vision.

Yeppi, it's her favourite colour:-)

Rose:
Hmm..I wonder which colour that your girl chose?
Pray that your daughter's eye check up will be fine.

It's very common these days for kids to be wearing the spectacles. I hope that her vision will improve.
