Back-to-school season is usually filled with shopping for new school supplies and getting ready for classes. But it’s also important to start the new year with a sturdy pair of glasses — especially if vision problems could cause problems with performance in school.
Read through our blog to learn more about scheduling your annual eye doctor visit, and see what styles are perfect for back-to-school!
Scheduling Your Eye Doctor Visit
Whether you have a child preparing for their first year of kindergarten or an older student returning to school or leaving for college, right now is a great time to schedule their routine eye exam.
Early eye exams are important for students to ensure they have healthy vision. If they have trouble reading their assignments or seeing the board, they could start to fall behind their peers or miss out on important information.
The same is true with older students. Outdated lenses or incorrect prescriptions could account for part of their school troubles.
During a routine eye exam, the optometrist will check for vision problems, like crossed or lazy eyes, in addition to testing their ability to see both up close and at distances and noting any changes in prescription.
Back-to-School Eyewear Trends
When it comes to back-to-school season, we know that many students are worried about being as stylish as their friends.
Clear frames have surged in popularity over the years. You can choose completely clear frames or do something a little different with tinted transparent frames that show off their favorite color. That way, students are still finding a pair of glasses that matches their style without choosing brightly colored frames that might clash with their day-to-day style.
If your student loves to make a statement with their clothes, a pair of patterned frames is a great way to carry some of that style to their eyewear. You can find all kinds of patterns, including the popular tortoise shell and two-toned frames. Give them some freedom and see what unique pattern they choose!
Is your student shy or reserved? Or are they worried about starting school with a pair of glasses? We know that not all students feel comfortable with a bright or bold eyeglass style. So instead of choosing a color that stands out, opt for simple black frames. This style matches any outfit while also giving your child the vision support they need to be successful in school.
