After WHA did their eye exams, we took two of the girls to the optometrist to get a more complete exam and to pick out glasses. Duyen & Hue needed glasses (1.25). Another young man needed glasses (2.25) which we arranged for him to get after we left, and one of the teenage boys had preliminary signs of glaucoma, so he will be getting a thorough exam in Saigon. Another little boy had some kind of eye infection–his eyes were red and itchy, so we got him some prescription eye drops.
It was fun watching the girls pick out their glasses. They had definite tastes and wrinkled up their noses at some of the ones we picked out :-). Cute!!
