  3. I love these coloring pages, especially the two girls on the beach! It is something our Ellie can really relate to and it’s simple enough for her to stay in the lines. I am going to print some out and take to our PO the next time I go. I will also take some to our vision therapist when I go this week! Thanks to all the artists!

  4. Thanks Corrie. Amomofelly made the two little girls, and I agree, they’re really sweet! The one with the shovel and pail reminds me of Zoe.

    Thanks for printing out and taking the coloring pages to the doctors’ offices!

  5. Thanks Corrie =) Hopefully I’ll get some little boys made soon I actually drew them for some T-shirt iron-on transfers that I did to personalize Elly’s hand-me downs. I’m bringing a set of the coloring pages to our OP too this visit. She requested them and I’m hoping she’ll make more copies for her waiting room =)

  9. Thanks Ann for letting us know about Ficklets. I just looked at the website and OMG they are adorable. Why didn’t I think of that? I’m ordering a few pairs. Now it’s just chosing which ones. They are all so cute. Kudos to the people who started that. Now glasses are really getting even more stylish. So neat. Thanks!

  11. Would you consider making some coloring pages with children wearing adhesive patches? Our little girl doesn’t have glasses, only a patch all day long…
    Thanks!

    • Absolutely, I’ll pass along the request! The Hot Air Balloons page does have a cat with just a patch, but I’ll see about getting some more that are just patching pictures.

  14. I was just contacted by a mom through my website (wonderbaby.org) who is looking for an organization that would help her purchase glasses for her son. Do you know of a charity that might help her? Her son wears glasses and needs a new pair, but medicaid will only pay for one pair a year. Any ideas? amber@wonderbaby.org

    Thanks!

  15. She should contact her local Lions Clubs International http://www.lionsclubs.org One of their “focuses” is: We want everyone to see a better tomorrow. That’s why we support sight programs and services including vision screenings, eye banks and eyeglass recycling. Provide eye care services to those at risk of losing their sight. And raise donations through campaigns like SightFirst and Campaign SightFirst II.

  16. My 3 (almost 4) year old son was just diagnosed with Amblyopia and has to wear glasses. I have worn glasses/contacts since I was 11. I never took to glasses as I don’t have a strong nasal bridge and they always slid down. I was worried he would not be able to comfortably wear glasses as his face snape is like mine. I searched around for other options and found a wonderful product called Wedgees. You place them on the legs of the glasses behind the ears and it keeps the glasses from sliding. I have started wearing my own glasses with the Wedgees and they never slide, I can do cartwheels and I can hang my son upside-down and the glasses do not come off. With my long hair you can’t see them but since he has short hair you can see them a little. Just wanted to share an option.

  17. Question, I have read that the pathways between the brain and eyes are still forming until age 6, I also heard 8-10, etc. I was told by my pediatrician that when the pathways are mature can be objectively determined. Does anyone know of a website/article that will explain to me how this is done?

  18. There is a website called “EyeDangles” (eyedangles.com) that sell jewelry made for eyewear. It is fantastic for kids. I have a friend that couldn’t get her daughter to wear her glasses until she put one of the eyedangles on them… now she doesn’t want to take her glasses off. Check out the site.
