Hard To See In The Dark (Ages)

| Related | May 15, 2014

(My daughter is having trouble seeing the board at school, so I take her to get her eyes tested. My daughter is an avid reader and is never seen without a book but has no trouble reading. It turns out she is short-sighted, meaning she can see well close up but not things in the distance. We go to the in-laws just after she gets her glasses.)

Mother-In-Law: “What is [Daughter] wearing glasses for?”

Me: “We had her tested and she needs them to see properly.”

Mother-In-Law: “No, she doesn’t. How dare you get her glasses. She doesn’t need glasses. Take them away from her.”

Me: “No. She needs them to see distances.”

Mother-In-Law: “It’s your fault. You let her read BOOKS! Reading ruins eyesight.”
