There's been a change in the Prescott household. Hailey Prescott, age 10, has just received her first pair of eyeglasses. I had an opportunity to interview Hailey on this momentous occasion.
M: So, Hailey, what is it like having glasses?
H: It's really different. I keep forgetting they're there. When I try to rub my eye or something, I always end up hitting them. It's good I have them, though.
M: Why is that?
H: It was getting hard for me to see, especially at school. I sit 4 rows back, and most of the time I couldn't read the white board at the front of the room.
M: And now that you have glasses, has your vision improved?
H: Oh, yeah, a lot! I can almost see better than Tess now! There were lots of things I didn't realize I was missing out on, like stuff in the background and individual leaves on trees. The first day with my glasses I just stared at the trees. Mama said I looked like I'd never actually seen the leaves before.
M: As much as they've helped your sight, have they been hard to get used to?
H: Yep. I had some bad headaches at first while my eyes were trying to adjust. And sometimes it's hard to keep them clean. One nice part is that the thing I worried the most about didn't happen.
M: What was that?
M: Well, thanks for taking the time for this interview.
H: You're welcome.
