Does anyone's child wear glasses? Jameson failed a vision screening at school and needs to get another done. I honestly done see how he could handle wearing glasses...every little thing distracts him and having something on his face all day would really irritate him.

Thanks brie_91

Seamus has worn glasses since he was 3½yrs old. The first year was super hard, but it also didn't help that 6mo after he got his glasses we had to start eye patching him too. He's almsot 6 now and has gotten used to them, he's realized how much better he can see with his glasses and doesnt' llike taking them off any more.

We had to do a lot, and I mean a lot of talking, crying, breaking of glasses, etc. to get to where we are now though (3 pairs were broken just last fall alone).

Danny doesn't wear glasses (yet - his optometrist says he likely will by first or second grade), but he's got his ear gear. It took a bit to get him used to it, and we definitely still need the clips to keep it clipped to his shirt for if it falls off (or he takes them off), but he's gotten a LOT better about it. I think after the initial battles, Jameson will start to see how useful the glasses are! Danny definitely prefers being able to hear, so he puts up with it a lot better than you'd expect from a kid that's easily distracted and has sensory issues.

No glasses here but I have had to start patching Katie, at first it was a struggle to get her to just leave it alone and not to keep trying to take it off and she is 6. But she has gotten alot better with it.
