“Can you repeat the question please?” someone said. But I couldn’t figure out who because my eyes were unfocused.

“Sure, what is the correct answer to seven divided by 53?” Mrs. Gavle said to the class. I was relieved because I could still not see the board very well.

I was playing at recess when I accidentally kicked the soccer ball into someone’s leg. I didn’t know who it was or what I hit at the time, so I just ran to whoever I hit to say I’m sorry and that it was an accident. Luckily it was just my best friend, Stella, and she was playing soccer too. I just didn’t know it was her.

That day after school I told my mom what happened. After the next week or so of struggling, I had an appointment to get my glasses. We ordered the glasses as soon as we could, and we then went to the glasses place to pick them up soon after.

One of the glasses ladies said, “If your glasses are not on your face, they belong in your case.” That helps me remember to keep my glasses safe.

I need glasses to see things from far away like the board, TV, people and so many more things. Glasses help me see and I need them to see. Before glasses most things looked blurry and fuzzy. After, things looks so clear and clean.
