At the optometrist

I went to see my optometrist recently. Can you tell from this picture what an optometrist does? I don’t find optometry that interesting, but something in this photo caught my eye: do you see the pirate and the mouse? Is that a mouse? Such pictures are common in the United States. People put their children’s artwork in their offices for everyone to see. I don’t remember seeing children’s artwork or photos displayed in Japan in the same way.



Optometrist: a person who examines the eyes for problems seeing and prescribes lenses


We have listed some of the words here in case you hear them, can’t catch them, and want to know how they are spelled. You may want to look some of these up in the dictionary too.
