Emma Gets Glasses

Emma’s been complaining about her vision for the past month. We finally got around to going to Pearl vision and getting her eyes checked. And we found out she’s near-sighted in the right eye and far-sighted in the left eye with a little stigmatism in both. She had to try on quite a few to get the perfect pair. Anyone who’s ever shopped with an adolescent girl, can appreciate what we went through.

Let me take you through a few of the options Emma considered on her way to the perfect pair for her.  As it turned out, taking photos really helped us both determine the right shape for her face.
