Hey M,

Thanks for this post. I suspect the same of my daughter (and my self - Oh how I wish I could blame hubby for this!) I have been dragging my feet on looking for a DO. Does it hurt when you take them in? Do they "paperclip" your kids eyes? Do they dilate them? Should any of this matter in terms of my daughters ocular health? No, but have these concerns kept me from looking more deeply? Yes! Who's looking like the bad parent now?

Also, thanks for the email. I'm thinking....


No to all of the above! Ms D is really really not so happy with dr's she was scared but they did all the typical tests for her plus a few others and it was NO problem whatsoever! I'll write you via email in more detail, but for a girl who doesn't' like dr's she did fine. No dilation, no paperclips. Check out some of the links I gave, too, may set your mind at ease.
