Glasses for Sara!

sara_glassesWith two very nearsighted parents, it doesn’t come as a surprise that Sara started to complain about not being able to read the letters on the digiboard very well from the back of the classroom. So I took her to an optometrist, and sure thing: he measured a 1.25 nearsightedness.

I remember very well, that when I was about 10 years old, I had so much trouble reading the blackboard and the subtitles on the television that my mum scheduled an appointment with the schoolnurse for me. Admittedly, the whole aspect of having to wear glasses was appalling to me at the time — gosh, how I disliked that poor schoolnurse when she told me that I very much needed a pair of glasses. Glasses were definitely not as cool then as they are nowadays!

Thankfully, glasses are considered to be very fashionable and stylish these days and Sara was beyond excited when she was told she could pick out a pair. So we got her this darling purple beauty, which I think look so, so good on her. (But which also make her look so, so much more grown-up!)

When we picked up her glasses from the store last week and she put them on her nose for the very first time, she experienced that feeling that I remember so very well — the revelation! So much light, colour and detail to be seen! To be able to read the street signs! The pavement looks so much bigger! A whole new world! So sweet. Next day, she was so proud to show her glasses to her class, her teachers and her girlfriends. And I’m so very proud of her!

Oh sweet Sara. She does look so grown up all of a sudden! I remember when she was crawling around my house, sneaking into cupboards!! 🙂 xx

Glasses wearers rock! She wears them very well. I am really happy for her that nowadays, it’s more than possible to wear glasses and look cool/chic/classy/whatever you want your look to be.

They really suit her! My nine-year-old has been desperate for a pair for years now. In fact, she wears my old frames and the ones my dad wore in the 70s! I too remember that moment of revelation. I sat in class, noticing every single hair on the heads of the students sitting in front of me. I couldn’t believe I could tell the hairs from each other! 😀

This pair really makes her look beautiful. A pair of glasses can totally transform the look as well as the confidence level of anyone. As Sara is able to clearly see every small particulars, she must be feeling confident about herself. And style is an additional benefit.
