Dr. Shimada

When my eye hurts

I know who to call

Hey! An optometrist

greatest of them all

She asks me, “what hurts?”

“What part of the eye?”

She figures out how

Then what I need and why

She gives me some glasses

I try ones to fit

This optometsit

Is a Miss fix-it

I take the color test

Then give my eyes a test

the optometrist

Is certainly the best

Who is this person

who checks eyes

An expert optometrist

Dr. Shimada is So, COOL!

I learn a lot from you.

I appreciate your time.

I respect what you do,

So for you I’m making a rhyme.

You’ve taught me so many times.

Though I still seem to forget.

About the iris, retina, and cornea

And there’s still a few more yet.

I never learn much here.

But still I love to go.

You’re kind to teachers so when you ask,

They can never just say, “No!”

Mrs. Esparza, Grade 5 / Sierra Vista Elementary, La Habra:

Hi Dr. Shimada,

I liked going to your office. That is where I go to get my glasses, so I already knew what it was like. I still had a great time. I liked to put on those 3D glasses and see which things stand out a lot. I will see you soon.

Dr. Shimada,

I liked going to your office. It was a long walk, but I still had fun. I liked that we got to have pizza and soda when we got there. I did the homework packet that you gave us. I learned a lot from you. Thank you for being so caring.

Dear Dr. Shimada,

I had such a great time in your office. I laughed really hard when we all got to try on the big thick glasses. I really liked looking in someone else’s eye. It was very interesting. If I ever need to get glasses, I am going to ask my mom to take me to your office.

Thank you, Jasmine

Dr. Shimada,

Going to your office was so cool. We learned many new things. We really liked playing the game that was like a video game. We can’t remember what it tested for, but it was fun! Thank you for lunch!

Dr. Shimada.

I liked going to your office. I was glad that I got to sit in the chair and everyone got to look inside my eyes. It was kind of weird to have everyone to close to my face, but I still liked it. Right now I don’t wear glasses, but if I ever have to, I hope that you are my optometrist.

Thank you, Amber

Dr. Shimada,

I had a great time at your office. Thank you for being so nice and explaining everything to us. You must be really smart. I wonder how long you had to go to school. I bet it was a long time.
