I can remember begging my parents to have my eyes checked when I was in elementary school. I desperately wanted the optometrist to say that I needed glasses. Not because I wanted to have difficulty seeing, but because I thought glasses were so cool! Between 4th and 6th grade, I kept telling my parents that I thought my eyes needed be checked, for reading if nothing else. Finally in 6th grade, my optometrist took pity on me and gave me my first prescription! Not something that ever gets excited for, but I was! He said that my vision really wasn’t bad at all and that the glasses were optional. I didn’t care because I finally had my cheap glasses! This website is the perfect place to buy cheap prescription glasses online. For a short time I thought my reading glasses were the coolest thing ever. Looking back at them now, I can see that they were in fact quite nerdy with their thick green frames. Makes me chuckle just thinking of me and my 6th grade mind.
As of right now none of my kids are in need of glasses, but I imagine my twins will be needing them before too long. They just barely pass their vision tests so I’m sure to have them checked on a semi-regular basis. Their dad has really poor vision so it’s not surprising. I don’t know if any kids these days consider it “cool” to have glasses, but after doing some browsing at the Vision Center at Walmart, I have found that glasses for kids have come a long way. This is a very good thing because when talking to my boys about their impending vision difficulties, they express nervousness over the whole thing. If they can feel a bit stylish or cool, that will definitely ease some of the pressure.
