My son just got his first pair of glasses yesterday (and looks absolutely adorable in them...) He has trouble with seeing things close up, so doesn't need to wear them all the time. He seems to like wearing them around the house - we think they must be making a huge difference for him since - according to the optometrist he has trouble coordinating his eyes and was seeing double up to 18 inches (!!!) away from his eyes. A good friend came for dinner and wore her glasses tonight to show him that she wears glasses too (usually contacts). He did not want to even put his on to show her. He tends to get very embarrassed easily, and that was the case tonight. Does anybody have any suggestions on how to help him get comfortable wearing glasses, especially around peers? I'm sure they would be a big help at preschool, but doubt he'd want to wear them there. Neither dh or I have ever had glasses. Thanks!
