Today was the appointment to have Erin's vision checked. I am always amazed at how Erin takes some things in stride. I hate going to the eye doctor. I've been seeing them since I was 2, and it hasn't changed for me. The experience is always awful.
When they called both Erin and me at the same time, I wanted her to go first. My theory was that if she went first, then she wouldn't see me all stressed out. I shouldn't have worried. She breezed right through the exam. David and I told him our different concerns - dyslexia (his concern) and developmental issues (my concern). Dr. Gendall was thrilled with Erin. According to him, she has perfect vision and her vision tracking is so good that she should be an athlete. Good guess since she has been taking karate since she was 4 1/2 and loves to play sports!
Apparently my college education was valid. It is his opinion that any issues are developmental due to her young age. He recommended a doctor to have her evaluated, and I will definitely be looking into this.
