No More Glasses!

When I received a letter in the mail two years ago saying that Morgan didn't pass her eye test in preschool, my heart sank.  I felt bad that my little girl would have to start wearing glasses at such a young age.  It turned out that she only really needed them for school and she was actually kind of excited about them!
Then, last year, Morgan, Blake and I all went for eye exams.  (Blake and my first eye exams ever!)  We all received good news.  Blake and I were fine and Morgan's eyes had improved!

This past winter I was fortunate to win Morgan (and Rich) a pair of Silhouette glasses.  So now she had two pair to choose from and would match her glasses to her outfits for the day. 
Last week, Morgan had another yearly eye exam.  I had hoped that this year she wouldn't need glasses anymore, since she had improved last year, and my wish came true!  Her eyes have improved enough that there is no need for glasses!  As excited as Morgan was to have glasses in the first place, I think she was even more excited that she didn't have to think about putting them on each day anymore.
 
I just hope that her eyes aren't working their way in the opposite direction and this year is the year that they happened to balance out.  Do eyes do that?  Can eyes work their way from being farsighted to nearsighted?  I guess I'll find out at her eye exam next year.  For now we're celebrating being free of wearing glasses! :-)

Congrats on the improvement!!! My FIL had that happen to him in middle age and he hasn't needed glasses since, his eyes just improved and stayed that way.

I'm happy for her not to have to wear glasses all of the time, but she was rocking them just the same. :)

Good for her! Unlike her, my eyes gets worse each year. Hope she can keep up the good trend!

That is so awesome I so would love to say the same at least for those moments when I get up and can't walk to the bathroom without them,
