My New Specs

I went for my eye check-up recently and came back with both good and bad news. Let's start with the bad news first... the power of my myopia has increased. According to my doctor (ophthalmologist) , this is very normal because as I grow, my eyeballs will enlarge and elongate, and this will naturally cause my power to increase. She prescribed the MyoVision lenses for me in the hope that this special breakthrough lenses is able to slow down the progression of my shortsightedness.

Well, the good news is, I have no more "lazy eyes". My vision can now be corrected to 6/6.

Test-wearing the new power for 10 minutes... no dizziness. Ok, pass!

Daddy conveying another bad news to me "No more iPad games on weekdays!"

Last year's prescription... 

My latest prescription... 

The special lenses prescribed to me

Immediately after leaving the eye specialist centre, we headed to Focus Point to pick a new frame for my new pair of MyoVision glasses.

I insisted on this pair of plastic-ky, thick-framed, nerdy one. Although I looked somewhat cute in this, it didn't gain mummy's approval...

How about this one then? It's purple and purple is my favourite colour...

Finally, we decided on this one... a pink frame with stars on the sides... nice?

There... me in my new specs :)

  5. Actually how did the dr check for lazy eye? I brought Gwen to ISEC 2 yrs ago, dr said she doesn't have lazy eye.

    Chloe looks pretty in her new pink glasses.

    1. Err, I'm also not sure how lazy eye is determined. I think it depends on the power... usually one eye is very high while the other is normal, or just low.

  13. I am person who has lazy eyes and myopia for more than 3 decades. We must really take good care of the eye sight. I am now having Presbyopia also.

  14. Yay! No more lazy eyes. As for the short-sightedness, guess u'll jes hv to wait for her eyes to stabilise. The MyoVision lenses r vy costly hor. Hopefully they're really effective. :) And she looks vy nice in her new stylish specs. Metal frame?
