After the experience children had in school bus with Spyridoula’s eye glasses, they asked me if I can see clearly while not wearing mine.
I replied that when not in glasses, I use eye-lenses. Next day, I gave them a pair of lenses to come in contact with. They touched them, smell them and realized that after a while they got dry.
So, I told them to place them into their own case with the special liquid and lenses became wet and resilient again.
Since then, every time that I don’t wear glasses, children look into my eyes and try to “locate” my lenses.
