Ophthalmology class in school bus!

20130821_193831-1Children 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.

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!!!
