The school nurse called and told me he couldn’t see. (And we wonder where mom guilt comes from).
That was kindergarten and he’s been wearing glasses ever since.
And every time his feet grow, his vision changes. Between having a size 11 men’s shoe now and being a rough and tumble boy, he’s been through a lot of glasses. He’s got my eyes, but thankfully, I don’t have his feet. In the past few years, he’s transitioned to contact lenses so he can shoot archery. But he hasn’t had a new pair of glasses since his feet were a size 10.5…which was 6 months ago. Ah, growing boys. So, when Pearle Vision offered to examine my son’s eyes and let him pick out a new pair of glasses, I jumped at the chance to save some money and he jumped at the chance to own his first pair of Oakley glasses.
Pearle Vision does a great job providing comprehensive eye exams for the whole family. They also make sure to get the prescription right. Comprehensive Eye Exam means…the vision test is thorough and looks at your eye health and also indicators in your eyes that can reveal information about your overall eye health. One can expect things like: pupil dilation, a visual acuity test (sharpness of vision), colorblind test, eye cover test, and a glaucoma test (list is not exhaustive).
Comprehensive eye exams are essential starting at the age of 3 or if your child shows signs of visual impairment. It turns out that my son probably isn’t the only one sent home for a vision test. 90% of children under the age of 6 who should be wearing prescription glasses are not and 10% of preschoolers and 25% of kids in K-6th grade have vision deficiencies. Today, with close to 600 eye care centers located throughout the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico, Pearle Vision is built around a doctor-centered business model with a primary focus on delivering genuine eye care to patients and become a trusted source for all their eye health needs. With school starting up around the corner, it’s a great time to get kids in for a vision test. They have great name brands, affordable specials, and skilled doctors like Optometrist Dr. Ngo, at our local Pearle Vision. Pearle Vision will be glad to see you.
