I Need Glasses

I have been having trouble seeing the blackboard. 

Everything is blurry. 

I keep getting headaches. 

I told my mother about it, and she made an appointment with the optometrist. 

I went to a place where they made me read words and letters on a chart. 

Some of the words were big, and some were very small. 

I tried to read everything, but sometimes I couldn’t see some of the small letters. 

The optometrist would cover one of my eyes while I read the chart. 

Then, she would cover my other eye. 

She even put some drops in my eyes. 

I asked the optometrist if I had passed or failed the test. 

She laughed, and said that it wasn’t the kind of test that you passed or failed. 

She was just trying to find out if I needed glasses. 

I did need glasses. 

My mother and I looked around. 

There were many pairs of frames. 

I wanted something that was in style. 

I tried on many pairs of frames. 

Some of them looked good on me, and some of them looked really funny on me. 

I finally chose a frame that was my favorite. 

I gave them to a lady who did some measurements. 

She told me to come back on Friday to get my glasses. 

On Friday, I got my glasses. 

My friends liked them. 

They said I looked smart in my glasses. 

I wore them to school on Monday, and I was able to see the blackboard clearly. 

I didn’t realize how much I hadn’t been able to see. 

Now I don’t get headaches anymore. 

I’m glad that I have my glasses. 

Everything is a lot clearer now.
