Ideal Eyes

I pretty much worry about everything. I’m not sure if you’ve ever heard of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator testing before, but I always test as an ESTJ (a Guardian type). It is only in my nature to worry.

Having a toddler compounds my worrying tendencies to the extreme. My most recent fear is that my  daughter might need glasses a la Daddy. My very smart, very handsome husband has very poor eyesight. Seeing as how my daughter has taken after him in so many other ways, I’m concerned. She likes to stand r-i-g-h-t in front of the television and has now started holding things close to her face to study them (not all the time, but still…)

How do you know if your toddler needs glasses? At what age can doctors predict this sort of thing? I’m considering the possibility that my child might need glasses, and would like to get this ‘fixed’ as soon as possible in order to protect her eyesight as much as I can. Does your child wear glasses? If so, at what age was your child diagnosed with poor vision? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

p.s. If you’ve taken the MBTI test before (or have a few minutes to follow the link above) please share your results 🙂 I’m interested in the “types” of people that visit my site.

    i know one of the warnings signs is if your child complains of headaches a lot. Apparently the strain of trying to focus can cause them.

    I would not worry about it. I did not get my first pair of glasses until I was almost 6 years old.

    You can have babies eyes tested starting at about 10 months, believe it or not! I have awful vision and I took my little guy in at about that point. I felt so much better knowing that his vision is normal.
