Alivia had her Ophthalmologist appointment on Tuesday. This time, however, I was able to prepare her for it. I talked to her about it in advance hoping it would make her more comfortable with taking the eye tests. I had always talked to her in advance before her other appointments but, this time at almost 2 and half years old, she was finally old enough to understand. As I put my makeup on at the bathroom sink her repetitive “no mama, no doctor” soon turned to “doctor check Livi’s eyes” and “doctor make eyes better”! I can’t believe how much she was getting it! And just incase the talk in advance wasn’t enough, I had another trick up my sleeve. This time, Auntie Lola would accompany us to the appointment. I knew Livi would be happy about this. Before I go into detail about the appointment, you may want to get caught up HERE about Livi’s intermittent exotropia also know as strabismus.
