Here are the importances of eye health, vision benefits & annual eye exams for children:
  • Eye exams are important for everyone in your family – from babies to adults, and everyone in between.
  • Annual eye exams are important to your overall health. They allow eye doctors to detect early signs of health conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, among others.
  • This year, 15 million kids will go back to school with undiagnosed vision problems. 
  • An annual eye exam can help children learn and experience life to the fullest
  • Parents should take their children to the eye doctor for a comprehensive eye exam starting as young as six months old, then again at three years old, before kindergarten and every year after that.
  • In-school screenings do not provide the same level of detection as comprehensive eye exams. 
  • 80 percent of what we learn is through our eyes, making an eye exam essential for back-to-school checklists.
  • Common signs of vision problems include squinting, head tilting, avoiding “close work,” trouble focusing, continuous rubbing of eyes and headaches.
  • 1 in 4 children has an undetected vision condition that can negatively impact learning.

You can get an extra $20 to spend when you purchase a featured frame brand - so designer brands become a little more affordable. My eye doctor mainly has designer brands on display, so this is great! I can actually maybe get what I can try on.
