Back to School: Protecting Your Kid's Eyes
It’s officially fall and by now most of our kiddos have gone back to school. We’ve started our routines and we’re getting back into the swing of things. I don’t know about you, but we thrive off of a routine and it’s so much easier to have a routine when school is back in. We’ve started checking off our list of school year to-dos…school supplies…fall clothes…teacher gifts to apologize in advance if your kid misbehaves (ha)!
I’ve been blogging for a couple of years now and have made friends in this same industry so I’ve read my fair share of back to school posts, but there is something they were all missing that I wanted to bring to your attention: YOUR KIDS EYES!
It’s something so incredibly obvious once we think about it, but easily gets overlooked when we’re preparing our kids for school. Noah is in middle school now and we had his eyes checked right before school started and the doctor gave him a prescription that should be used as needed. Something I learned from this doc that I didn’t know prior is that our eyes get “tired” and our vision can change throughout the day. If the day has been particularly long and stressful, your eyes might gradually perform more poorly than at the beginning of the day when you’re well rested. WHAT! I had no idea. That explains so much. When the quality of our eyesight is reduced and stressed we can experience blurred vision, headaches and more. If you haven’t had your little one’s eyes checked recently, I’d encourage you to do so.
Once you’ve gotten your eyes checked, head over to www.discountglasses.com and browse a huge variety of glasses at some of the best prices. Use code: BACK2SCHOOL for 20% off your order. Noah has the Nerf Carl in black. He said he wanted to channel a Von Miller vibe and go with a bigger trendy frame.
Some of you may be thinking your kiddo has perfect vision (awesome) and you tell yourself they don’t need glasses. True…maybe. These days our kids are on so many tech devices with screens that emits harmful blue light. At school they have tablets and laptops. At home they have video games, TVs, phones and more. Discount Glasses has computer glasses and anti reflective lenses to help block blue light. Anti-reflective lenses reduce glare, increase contrast and block blue light from digital devices. According to the non profit Prevent Blindness, too much blue light can lead to:
Digital eyestrain: "Blue light from computer screens and digital devices can decrease contrast leading to digital eyestrain.
Retina damage: Studies suggest that continued exposure to blue light over time could lead to damaged retinal cells. This can cause vision problems like age-related macular degeneration.
You can learn more about blue light HERE.
So your kiddo with perfect vision may not need glasses for the most part, but you should certainly consider getting them something to block the blue light when they’re using their devices. I’m actually going to snag a pair for myself since I am on my computer and phone for work frequently.
