Wow, thank you so much for your eye-care stories and advice. Charlotte had an appointment with an ophthalmologist this last week and he's thinking glasses might just solve the issue without any patching whatsoever. You should have heard how thrilled he was that we brought her in so early. I guess there are issues that if left unresolved can cause long-term problems and possible loss of sight - ay, ay, ay. The doctor said that Charlotte's a tad far-sighted in one eye and trouble focusing that eye is what's causing it to turn in a little at times. We're not too worried. He really did think the glasses would likely do the trick. We'll watch for progress over the next month or so, then see what else is needed, if anything, at our next appointment.
Boy, did we feel clueless picking out glasses. Neither Isaac nor I have ever needed glasses, though I've always secretly wanted some. We ended up with flexy, bendy purple ones with shatter-proof lenses and an elegant frame. They should be ready early this week. Now I need advice on how to help Charlotte keep track of them!
Ophthalmology. O-P-H-T-H-A-L-M-O-L-O-G-Y. Ophthalmology. Two crazy, extra letters in there. 'Ophthalmology' would have sunk me in a Spelling Bee.
