The Eye Doctor

Mrs. Crawford picked me up and school today because she had an appointment at the eye doctor, she sat on her glasses. When she picked me up she had an old pair of glasses on and looked really funny because the glasses where really huge and had points on the corners of the top like wings.

When we arrived I noticed a sign with three names and a bunch of words that all started with the letter O and hard to pronounce: Ophthalmologist, Optometrist and Optician. We walked in and the lady at the desk took Mrs. Crawford’s information and we had a seat in the lobby.

I asked Mrs. Crawford about all the O’s and what they meant. She said the Ophthalmologist was her Eye Doctor and he had gone to medical school to be a doctor, almost 12 years of college. He’s the one who did Mrs. Crawford’s eye surgery before so she could see well. The Optometrist has also helped Mrs. Crawford before but Mrs. Crawford said that person can’t do surgery or some of the stuff that her regular doctor does. The Optometrists also attends college but doesn’t go to medical school so they can’t do surgery.

Today Mrs. Crawford had to see the Optician because that person fixes the glasses. The Optician is the person who sits at a desk and helps people fit new glasses and figures out what lenses they need. Mrs. Crawford’s Optician was names John and he looked at the broken glasses and took them back to a room and worked on them. When he came back the glasses looked new again, the lens hadn’t broke just the frames got bent. He put them on Mrs. Crawford’s face and looked at them from front and side and made a few changes until they fit right again. He also let me try a bunch of the glasses and some of them looked really funny. My favorite glasses had diamonds on the front and side and made me look like a famous singer or something like that.

It’s the weekend!!!!! Really looking forward to playing out in the snow. See you later.

  1. I’m having vision problem nowadays. I have shortsightedness but I can’t wear glasses all the time. Besides, I need to do cooking by myself and it’s not possible to wear glasses or lenses while cooking but again heat harms my eyesight. What should I do? ortho k contact lenses
