Specs for the Girl

Marissa furrows her brows like this when she watches TV or the computer. 
Dr. Koe referred her to see an ophthalmologist : Dr. Tan. 
Upon consultation, both kids were given sweets! And both of them took the sweets (but didn't eat them though). 
She was then prescribed atropine eye drops.
At the 2nd appt, Dr. Tan offered them sweets again but this time, the kids declined politely (or rather, we parents said no, thanks)
After the eye checks, Dr. Tan prescribed pilocarpine eye drops. She's got longsightedness and most likely astigmatism as well. Follow up scheduled on 25th Jan 2011. Hopefully the glasses will help to correct her vision.

New pair of pink specs from Focus Point.

Hey, do get her fun girly/pretty frames so that she 'sees' her glasses as fashion accessory rather than corrective item.

allan - yes she looks more like me now

wan har - had difficulty in finding a suitable frame for her cos of her size. there were other cuter frames but too big for her. anyway, she chose this pink one herself.

How come she's longsighted at such a young age?

Not sure - but highly possibly due to bad genes.
