Namine had an appointment at the eye clinic. We came away with some excellent news.
With her new glasses, Namine looks a little (okay, a lot) more grown up than I’m comfortable with. Granted, they’re just for reading (is that “near-sightedness” or “far-sightedness”? I can never remember), but I am very glad that she is comfortable with the way she looks with them on. That’s more than I could say when I got glasses, and I was much older than she is when I got mine.
When we took Namine to pick out a pair of glasses, we assumed we wouldn’t be getting anything that day. We were right. Having two insurances (my private insurance and her state insurance) to account for really throws a wrench in the works. But that’s all neither here nor there, since we could still look around and Namine could get a feel for the kind of glasses she wants. As it turns out, she is extremely easy to please in regard to glasses.
We have a prescription for Namine’s glasses. We get our glasses at the VisionWorks in the mall, so it made sense to get Namine’s there, too. We also just so happened to have one a free train ride, so we decided to make a day of it.
