Because she had started school and had never been to the eye doctor to have her eyes checked, I decided to schedule an appointment for Kate just to make sure that she was able to see just fine. She had only mentioned once or twice that she was having trouble seeing something, so we were not sure if that was because of a vision issue or because she was just tired at the time. Let's face it,genetically speaking, she will end up with glasses at some point. Sorry, kiddo.
She was a little bit nervous but I had tried to reassure her that eye doctors do not use needles for things. I think she assumes that doctor means "I will get shots" of some kind and who is a fan of that? Not me. I purposely didn't tell her about the machine that blows air into your eyes. I figured she would never sit down for that if I did.
In the pre-exam room, the tech had her cover one eye and read letters for her. Now I had just done this same thing, and on one of my smaller lines I had to read Kate informed me very loudly that I got a letter wrong. The tech thought this was cute. When it was her turn to read lines, she did really well until she got down to the tiniest little line on the card that she was holding at the time. The tech asked if she could read any of those letters, and Kate promptly removed the cover from her second eye and leaned really close to start reading. We both got a big laugh out of that!
