So, Abby has been in contacts for 2 weeks now ... or so I thought. Long story short, we took her to see her new eye doctor in St. Louis yesterday and NEITHER contact were in her eyes. I would have NEVER known, because she was still playing, reading books, etc. as normal. I even had been "checking" her eyes 2-3 times a day and thought I was seeing them in her eyes ... guess not! I was about to get really upset at myself, but then was just amazed at all the "normal" activities that Abby has been doing without have any type of corrective lenses -- I mean, crap, according to all medical logic, she shouldn't be able to see ANYTHING and yet she was still playing with toys and walking around just fine. My kid is a miracle!
Anyways, she's back in glasses and we're not going to even try contacts anymore, because (1) she's having strabismus surgery (crossing of the eyes) June 19th and can't be in contacts for two weeks and (2) she's likely going to get lens implants this winter and will need to wear "normal" glasses afterwards for reading. So, she can just continue being super cute in glasses. )
