Children always laugh when they see my eyes like this!
One day, kids asked me: “hey, what’s happening with your glasses and they can make your eyes so big? We want to know how you see”!
I told them eye-doctor says I have Hypermetropia. “And how does he know?” they further asked. So, I brought them printed papers with numbers and pictures, like the ones eye-doctors use.
They started examining themselves
and also asked to be examined by their friends.
Then, I gave them my glasses to understand “how I see”. Children tried them in many ways and said “Woooooow, everything looks bigger through your glasses!!!”.
They got really excited by all this. Now, they may decide to construct an eye-clinic in class, examine other children and prescript the right glasses!!!
