M is nearsighted. We learned this because we were at the optometrist for some other weird eye things. According to the doctor at her 8 month appt, she sees so poorly that when she walks she will walk into things and she will definitely get glasses when she is 1. Then at the 12 month appt, she said, well, her vision is slightly better so we don't usually give glasses at 1 if their vision is at this level, but it's still very bad and she can't see well at all. Not getting glasses was okay with me because I didn't want the battle over wearing them, the extra cost, and more trips to the doctor, who is far away. But now I am like, if she really can barely see enough to not walk into things, that is really bad! Won't it hurt her development? Should we not bother with plays and the zoo? I guess most 1 year-olds who can't see well do not even know it, and I do feel more comfortable waiting to correct her vision until she can communicate better, but I just don't know if waiting is going to hurt her.
