Making a Spectacle of Herself

Katie noticed that she was having trouble reading the whiteboard at school. This was not a surprise to us, given the state of the eyes of both of her parents. So we got an appointment at the optometrist and took her there today.

It turns out that Katie is *very* mildly astigmatic. *That* was a surprise -- I would have bet on myopia. But I would have been wrong.

So Katie now has glasses to use for distance vision, primarily at school. Whether she gets sports glasses is another question altogether. We'll find out more about that as softball season starts.
