Thankfully, She Doesn’t Need Them

I found my first pair of glasses in my nightstand drawer, and Ane tried them on.  I knew Ressis and the Major would especially love a look at this (not to mention Grandma and Gichan).

Ane wears Mom's old glasses

After my siblings pick themselves up off the floor (because they probably will fall over laughing), I would like to remind everyone that I got this pair of glasses in early 1988, when I was in fourth grade.  IT WAS THE EIGHTIES, PEOPLE.  And I already went look through my scanned pictures for one with me wearing this pair of glasses, and I don’t have one that’s big enough.  I’ll have to find and scan one later.

But still, I had to get glasses at a very young age.  I’ve been wearing some kind of corrective lens for over 25 years.  And my eyes aren’t stable enough for lasik surgery, so that’s out of the question at the moment.

And I am VERY glad that Ane has no need for glasses.  Fingers crossed that the kids have all inherited the Webmaster’s fabulous eyesight (he has 20/15 vision).

    Saying “it was the eighties” isn’t really an excuse; the Major and I hated those glasses back then.

    I’m curious how your eyes aren’t stable enough for LASIK.

    Thanks for the laugh. I may not have fallen to the floor, but my sides sure hurt.

    My prescription keeps changing. You have to have no prescription changes for at least a year before you can do LASIK. My eyes have gotten weaker in increments since Rerun was born.

    Actually your glasses on your daughter is not really so much out of style these days. I know several young ladies that would love your frames for their own glasses.
    Your daughter and other children have a 50% chance of not needing glasses, depends on which genes they get.
    Your correct that you can’t consider lasik until your eyes are completely stable for really closer to 18 months.
