Lucas has been asking for quite some time to go back to the optometrist and try contacts again. He has tried twice before but with no success. The first two times saw Lucas frustrated, scared and upset. He couldn't do it. He couldn't get past his wicked blink reflex or his long eye lashes. He worked for hours trying so hard to make it happen and it just didn't.
Today was different. He was still scared but determined. His motivation ~ he wants to play hockey without glasses. That's a good motivator.
He worked with the fantastic team of ladies from our fabulous optometrist's office. They were patient and kind as he struggled to put his contact lenses in. His blink reflex was still strong and his eye lashes are still long but he worked and worked and worked. I could see the sweat forming on his brow as his determination grew.
