Kinnick's getting glasses
Kinnick has had the lenses removed from both of her eyes due to extreme ROP. She's trying so hard to see things. So, we're going to replace the missing lenses with glasses. Her right eye will be at +18 and her left eye will be at +10. This should make up the difference for the missing lenses. Both retinas still have fluid under them, so this won't give her 20/20 vision. The hope is that the fluid will continue to go away allowing the retina to attach. It will take about 3 weeks to get the glasses made.
We liked this pair, but didn't like the extra clear piece on the bridge.
This is the pair we decided to get. They will be a size smaller and will be a pale pink color. They should look similar to the one above with the clear piece on the bridge. She didn't seem to mind them on her ears. Hopefully she'll leave them alone and let them do their work. I'm excited to see what difference they make.
