After ZayZay’s experience with Transitions lenses, I started to think maybe the whole family should get a pair. So like a good mother, I did my research.
Did you know that an average of one in four children have an undetected vision problem that can interfere with the ability to read and lead? Proper eye care and eyewear are critical to performance inside the classroom and in your child’s everyday life. Equally as important to healthy vision is eye protection. According to Transitions, children are more at risk of the eye-damaging effects of UV exposure than adults. The eye of a child under the age of ten allows more than six times the amount of UV light to penetrate than an adult’s eye, so it’s never too early to start protecting a child’s eyes.
Transitions lenses block 100 percent of harmful UVA and UVB rays – helping to protect the health and wellness of your eyes – so you can see better tomorrow as well. Additionally, the Transitions performance sunwear are high-performance lenses specifically designed for outdoor use, providing a visual advantage by adjusting to changing light conditions for color, contrast enhancement and improved depth perception. Transitions performance sunwear are available in prescription and non-prescription and with or without polarization.
Now again as a mother I am well aware that convincing your teenage child to get an eye exam and because eighty percent of what a child learns is visual. Transitions developed the “Eye Didn’t Know That” (“Yo No Sabia Eso”) website for kids in both English and Spanish. The site is a fun and educational way for adults and kids alike to learn about the importance of healthy sight and how to maintain it.
The Eye Didn’t Know That! Website offers materials for children, parents, teachers an eye care professionals to use to teach and learn more about the eye care basics and the importance of eye health and regular comprehensive eye exams. The information includes fact sheets, games, quizzes, lesson plans and free downloadable materials. See more at: http://www.eyedidntknowthat.info/for-kids/
With kids going back to school it’s a perfect time to schedule your child’s eye exam. Don’t forget to take advantage of the new Transitions Lens TRIAL for consumers. For more details go to :http://transitionstrial.com/

This is part of a sponsored campaign with Latina Mom Bloggers and Transitions Optical. I was provided with a complimentary eye exam and pair of eyeglasses to test for the purpose of this campaign. However, all opinions expressed are my own.
