When do you plan on getting them checked?

Do you think they will need glasses?

I didn't get Kayla's checked until she started school. She got glasses in 1st grade, I think.

I'll do the same with Em and Abby unless I notice them having trouble.

I'm sure they'll need glasses at some point. DH and I both had them when we were young.

Dh still has them unlike me who has PERFECT eyes now!

I told DH that the perfect graduation gift for the girls would be lasiks. Can you beat the gift of vision?

Lucy will have her first one at her 3.5 year check up. I don't think there will be a problem. Although, you did remind me I need to make an appointment to have mine done.

None of my kids have gotten their eyes checked. I have heard that they should around months and 3 years of age so they are ready for school but I think might be too young yet.

I will be getting Breana checked but we don't have vision insurance. so I will be waiting until we have that or when she enters school.

I think they will be OK both DH and I didn't need glasses when we were kids but need them now.

Jillian has been to an eye doctor but that was when we were concerned about her eyes crossing.

Neither kid has had their vision checked. Ben will be 4 this summer. When he goes for his 4 year check up I'll ask his doctor when they should do it.

DH has really terrible vision and so does his oldest daughter so I'm concerned that our children will as well.

Our pedi does a quick check with an eye chart when they hit 2. And give referrals to an eye dr. if they think anything is wrong..

reminds me I desperately need to find an eye doc. These broken glasses suck. I look like such a loser.
