Oh, no, you’re short-sighted! (3/5)
A: Do your eyes feel any better after using those eye drops I prescribed for you last time?
B: It’s easier for me to see things now, but I still can’t see the words on the blackboard all that clearly.
A: OK, so I think you should be wearing glasses. There’s an optician next door with professional optometrists, so you can go over there and see them.

B: What do you think about me having laser surgery?
A: Your short-sightedness is not that serious, it won’t have too much of an impact on your everyday life, so I don’t think you need to have laser surgery.
