As the school year is starting for millions of children across the U.S., many of us parents are busy getting our children ready for success. There’s school shopping for clothes and supplies, physicals, immunizations, and more. I don’t know about you, but my cup is running over. There’s so much on my to-do list to get my daughter prepared!
With all of the to-do’s on our list, many of us feel like our kids are ready for the new school year. But there may be something that is being overlooked, and that is the importance of an eye exam.
School aged children should have an eye exam every year. Statistics indicate that 1 in 4 children have a vision problem. This can impede their learning and can cause them to fall behind in their studies. Every child every year deserves to have the opportunity to reach their potential, and being able to see properly is critical.
There are other issues associated with children’s poor vision including learning difficulties and poor sports performance.
Visionworks has introduced a movement called Let’s Go See, which encourages annual eye exams for kids. With this program, they are donating 15,000 comprehensive eye exams and complete pairs of glasses to children in need.
Isn’t this awesome?
I am very thankful that my daughter has the means to get her eyes checked once a year via our insurance, but there are so many other kids without the ability. Let’s Go See helps close the gap, providing the opportunity for all children to see their best and do their best.
Kids in families that do not have vision insurance, Medicaid, or without ACA, and cannot afford to get an eye exam or glasses can go to Let’s Go See and apply for a free voucher. With this voucher, a child can receive a full eye exam and children’s $69.95 children’s frames with polycarbonate lenses.
Kudos to Visionworks for investing in your children so that they can be a success in everything that they do.
If you haven’t already, make sure that you make an appointment to get your child’s vision checked. Let’s start off the school year arming them with the tools they need to reach for the stars.
