The Opticians Visit #SmallStepsAA 

By | October 2, 2017

It’s been a “given” for – well, as long as I can remember – that Hubbie does the sport-related activities with T and that I do all the medical/school related bits that need   doing.  

The fact I’m a non-driver plays a massive factor in this,  especially with away games and training for T as they are venues not always easily accessible by public transport.

That “given” got put to the test last week with an opticians visit and eye test for D.


She’d managed to catch her glasses in play equipment at school and, as you can see, they snapped.  

Cue a phone call from school, with immense guilt from my point of view with the fact that I’m still under post-op orders to be foot up and there was no way I could drop her old pair off or – more importantly – get to the opticians with her.

So, massive change alert, Hubbie took her to her appointment, which included an eye test as she was two weeks away from needing one, she has them every six months as she has worsening astigmatism in one eye.

Mega eh? We don’t use a national chain of opticians as we find our local one very accommodating and extremely autism-friendly, they are happy to book a double appointment and let D relax into there, which normally involves a few moments of trying on some very whacky frames.

So, off that went and her new glasses, with a new prescription have been ordered.

I think it was a challenge for both, Hubbie unsure as to how D would react to so much change and similar for D as she’s so used to doing these tasks with me.

I’m also looking forward to seeing her new frames on her as obviously I wasn’t there and have no idea what they chose.

Well done to both of them, hope she’s happy with her new glasses when they arrive #SmallStepsAA
