I brought her in to the Dr and her neurological exam was fine and he thought it might be pressure from sinus issues.
She occasionally still complains of them so the next step was the eye Dr.
I just got home from the appt and Halle has glasses coming her way. She is a bit far sighted but what we think is causing her problem is what they call
From what I understand when you try to focus on something your eyes have to go inward a bit to "converge" or focus on the words you're trying to read.
When you have this problem the muscles are a bit too weak to do that easily so it causes extra strain on the eyes to work properly.
Apparently it's a common problem and not too big of a deal. Kids quite often grow out of it but in the mean time glasses with a special prism lens will help. If she continues to have headaches there are eye exercises also.
The Dr feels confident this is what is causing her problem and when she complains of blurry vision she is probably seeing double.
I'm so relieved. When your kids are having health issues- I don't think there's anything worse. Even though I figured it had to do with her eyes there's always that nagging fear in the back of your head that it's something much more serious.
We picked out glasses- They were the first ones we put on and they are SO cute on her and bonus- they were the cheapest ones- way to go Halle!!!!
She is actually very excited about them now that she has seen them. She wasn't before we went so this is good. Hopefully we get them before Spring Break Vacation.
She only has to wear them while at school and reading- not when she's outside so hopefully they won't break within the first month!
