It’s been a few weeks since Liam has been rocking his new glasses from Pearle Vision and we couldn’t be happier. We mentioned in our last post that we opted for transition lenses because my son has always wanted sunglasses. Unfortunately, due to his high prescription level, he was never able to wear them on sunny days. Well, this year has been an entirely different story and I have one happy little boy because of it! In just one visit, we were able to not only get through our entire appointment – including a very thorough eye exam – but we were also able to choose the frames that we liked and place our custom order too.
And boy did we have a great selection of frames to choose from! I just loved that there was a special kids’ frame section marked off for children. Pearle Vision truly made eyeglass shopping a breeze for my family.
Pearle Vision was founded in 1961 by Dr. Stanley Pearle, who began the concept of one-stop, total eye care with the opening of the Pearle Vision Center in Savannah, Ga. 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.
You can book your appointment online which was absolutely a BREEZE! I actually found a Pearle Vision location less than 2 miles from my house. Routine eye exams are so important for children.
Did you know that:
- 90% of children under the age of 6 who should be wearing prescription glasses are not
- 80% of what children learn is through their eyes
- 1 out of 20 children has a problem that could result in permanent vision loss if left unattended
- 10% of preschoolers and 25% of kids in K-6th grade have vision deficiencies
- 75% of children haven’t had an eye exam by age 5 even though they should have their first at age 3
- The AOA estimates that 80% of preschoolers do not receive vision screenings
- 40% of teenagers need vision correction – and several of them go untreated
What can you expect during your child’s exam? Your doctor will check:
- Overall vision health
- Color vision
- Depth perception
- General eye health
Whether Liam is riding his bike around the block, trying to catch a fly ball at Citifield or reading a chapter of social studies for school, I know that he can see clearly thanks to Pearle Vision.
