A visit from Kimmie

I had one of those serendipitous moments yesterday when Kimmie came back to see me. She is a delightful 11 year old that I have been seeing for several years in the office. She inherited her myopia from her dad who has a high amount of myopia. She came back in for a recheck and had another increase in her myopia. Her family had moved out of town to a far away ski /recreation area and she was back in town for the holidays. I have been thinking about her all year because when she was here on her last visit she made me a surprise drawing of herself wearing her new eyeglasses. I proudly put it on the wall in one of our exam rooms. A day does not go by without a patient commenting about the drawing. It was
a true surprise and I enjoy looking at it every day. Apparently my patients do too. I told her how popular the drawing was and she was a little embarassed yet happy to hear about it. It reminds me about how prescious my patients are to me and how much they have become a part of my life.
