Sami had her eye appointment yesterday. I have to say she did amazingly well. A five year old and a two hour appointment with no tears was a complete surprise.
Sami had been referred to a pediatric eye specialist because of some issues on the eye exam at her physical for our move to Japan. As it turns out Sami has a slight issue with her right eye turning in that the doctor feels will correct itself as she grows older and doesn't cause for alarm right now. The more surprising part is that she isn't nearsighted as kids, teens and young adults usually are. Instead she is farsighted. The doctor said she thinks as her eyes grow this will change and for right now she just wants to watch it and see what changes her eyes make in a year. Most likely Sami will need glasses down the road, but for now we are safe for another year.
Here are a few pictures of Sami taken with my camera phone. My favorite by far is the one with her "movie star" glasses.
