Lyra has developed enough of a refractive error to need glasses. They are for farsightedness and the strength is +2.5 in one eye and +2.75 in the other. Her PO was going to wait another 6 months. I asked if we could go ahead and get them, as long as there was not HARM in it, so that Lyra could get more “practice” wearing them. The doctor agreed and told us to try and get Lyra to wear them 25% to 50% of the time. We are excited and nervous at the same time. We are still trying to figure out a way to get our insurance to pay for them, so we haven’t actually GOT the glasses yet.
One thing I worry is that friends and family might assume that her vision is 20/20 once she has the glasses. These glasses will only correct her vision to a point, and do nothing for her distance vision.
