New Glasses

Not sure if I mentioned this before, but in July Kyle put Reese's glasses on the roof of the car. Then we drove away. We went back but couldn't find them, nor were they turned into lost and found. GRRR...
There is a single pediatric ophthalmologist is Kitsap County (and he also sees adults) so of course he was booked until 3 days before Reese's regularly scheduled appointment. Reese was without glasses for about 3 weeks until his appointment and then another 5 days until he got his glasses. For a change his prescription is actually weaker than last time..woo hoo!

AND we went to Walmart to get his glasses made so they were pretty cheap this time!! The style option in his size are basically one pair. These are Diego glasses, brown wire though the picture seems silver. They actually are pretty cute...though I do like his old glasses better for cuteness. But these were $80 and the old glasses were $214....so these are cute enough. Especially since he wears them at school and rarely any other time. They'd probably look cuter in this photo if his hair wasn't all wonky from his nap.

So cute! :) C's glasses cost- wait for it- $400. Her prescription is too strong for a "typical" glasses place to make. They have to be custom made at some special lab. They take forever too. Crazy. We are in the throes of waiting for (ugh) contacts to come in. The ophthalmologist and I think they'll be the only thing to help with her peripheral vision... I'm nervous about this step!

We love Diego around here:-). Glasses are expensive! I wear them when I have too--ie, when I forget to order my contacts. I know Reese is glad to be seeing through his new eyes again.
