I should have taken Zoe in to get her glasses adjusted a long time ago. Her blue glasses have been leaving red marks on her nose for quite a while now, but she wasn’t complaining about it. Her red glasses have been looking crooked for almost as long, but again, she wasn’t really complaining. Then last weekend, she refused to wear her sunglasses, which she normally loves, because they “hurt her eyes.”
So we finally got in on Friday with all three pairs in tow. I know from experience that middle of the day on a weekday tends to be pretty quiet, so that’s when we went and there was only one other mother-daughter pair there (coincidentally, they were picking up the same frames as Zoe has, but in different colors. We complimented them on their good taste). The guy who was working laughed as I pulled glasses case after glasses case out of my purse, but he was happy to do the adjustments. I had been a bit worried about bringing in the sunglasses, since those didn’t come from the store, but I explained that we got them elsewhere, and he was fine doing the adjustments on those as well.
Both the blue pair and the red pair were too tight, and the red pair was crooked as well. The optician said she must have had a growth spurt. Lesson learned: If she’s getting red spots on her nose, we need to get her in for an adjustment. Happily, we learned that they could be adjusted to still fit for a good long while. We’d been worried that Zoe was going to need new frames again, but we’re good with these for a while still. The sunglasses were too loose, but they’re fitting well now, too, and Zoe wore them with no complaint the last two days.
Zoe happily told everyone she saw on Friday and Saturday about getting her glasses adjusted, and that she got stickers from the glasses shop as well. I worry that she’ll one day put two and two together and realize that if she bends her glasses, she’ll get to go to the shop for glasses adjustments and a sticker.
