Apparently he has astigmatism, correctable with glasses. We have to go get the glasses made sometime in the next couple of weeks before kindergarten starts.
Sigh. I was hoping he would inherit MrWhatsit’s good vision, and not my “regularly run into walls without my glasses on” eyes. I am also not excited about the prospect of getting a 5-year-old to keep track of where his glasses are, and keep from breaking them.
The good news is that he thinks glasses are “cool” and is looking forward to getting them. I just hope they don’t have any Thomas the Tank Engine themed frames at the optometrist’s office, or we might be in trouble.
