Jacob, my four year old, needs glasses.
I noticed about six months ago that one of his eyes was drifting in. Hmm. Has it always done that? Dan, have you noticed . . .? Yes, my husband Dan noticed too. Jacob has always been a bit clumsy. I just assumed this was because he chose to ignore the objects in his path. A lifestyle choice, really. But it suddenly occurred to me that maybe Jacob isn’t seeing things clearly. Jacob’s eye began to drift more often. So, we did what any parents without a shred of medical expertise would do. We did our own eye exam.
