The state of Illinois now requires all students entering kindergarten to have an eye exam prior to starting school. Since we have a kindergartner in the fall I took Cameron today for his first eye exam. Instead of the letter eye chart it was pictures of common objects. Cameron did an awesome job and doesn't have to go back for a year. I was afraid the odds were against him since I started wearing glasses in the second grade but he doesn't need any vision correction at this time. He has a slight astigmatism (an imperfect eye curvature) but he may out grow it. It was a strange experience for me as I remember doing my first eye exam when I was probably 7 or 8. A full circle moment. I have a feeling there will be many of these in my future.
