My daughter is 21 months old and has had glasses since Februry for extreme long sightedness. She is fantastic with them and rarely takes them off - although in the beginning it was a battle. However, all her little friends pull them off constantly. Any ideas to combat this? Also, I can't believe people's reactions to her glasses " Oh the poor thing", "That must be terrible for her" and the like as if she has a major illness. We are actually preventing later sight problems and a major turn in one or both eyes by catching it at this early stage. How can I get people to react positivelt so as she gets older she doesn't feel "different" or learn to play up to it?
