Set The Tone For The 2016 School Year With Visionworks! #VisionWorks #Ad



    Starting the school year off on the right foot is always a very important part of the month of September for our family.  That includes making sure that the kids have all of the school supplies that they need as well as ensuring physicals are up to date along with new eyeglasses.  This is no easy feat since every single member of our family of four wears glasses and designer eyeglass frames can get pretty expensive.

    Our boys both have their own fashion sense and color preferences so they put a lot of thought and time into choosing just the right frames that will express their individual styles.  Visionworks has the largest selection of kids’ frames for Back to School with the bold and bright colors that have become all the rage this back to school season.  

Here are some of the current trends that they have for kids:

  • Fiery reds: A hue not for the shy, frames with pops of red are perfect for your fiery spirited child, who loves the spotlight and trying new things. Red says, “I’m a leader.”
  • Bold blues: For the confident, social butterfly, reach for a pair of blue toned frames, perfect for turning heads and meeting new friends on the first day of school. Blue says, “I’m social.”
  • Refreshing greens: Those with big imaginations who spend their afternoons playing in the backyard are just the type to rock this trend of pops of green. Green says, “I’m adventurous.”

    As a parent and an educator, it is really important to me that my sons’ vision isn’t keeping them from doing their best academically.  Many parents are not aware that an annual eye exam is recommended for school age children.  By adding an annual eye exam to your child’s back to school routine, you’ll guarantee that it will be a successful year both inside and outside the classroom.  


    A comprehensive eye exam is conducted by an optometrist or ophthalmologist who use specialized equipment to evaluate your child’s vision and eye health.  Visionworks accepts hundreds of vision insurance plans but they also want all children to get annual eye exams, regardless of their financial situation.  They have partnered up with Davis Vision to give away 10,000 comprehensive eye exams and complete pairs of glasses to children in need through the Let’s Go See initiative.

    If you don’t have vision insurance or Medicaid, aren’t signed up for ACA and can’t afford an eye exam and glasses, or if you know of a school or organization that has children who could benefit, apply for a free voucher, or nominate a child, school or organization at  Thanks to Let’s Go See they hope to raise awareness of the importance of annual eye exams for children as part of their yearly health routine.

  1. It’s so important to have their vision checked before school. If they can’t see very well, it definitely affects learning!

  2. My son doesn’t currently wear glasses but I like that Visionworks has a program like this. I am going to need glasses really soon so I may just hit them up myself!

  3. My eyes are SO bad that the best thing my parents did for me was get me glasses in fourth grade. Turns out the reason I wasn’t doing well in school is because I couldn’t see the dang board! I was amazing by LEAVES because I hadn’t really seen them on trees before then! LOL

  4. I have worn glasses since middle school, and I think my middle guy is going to end up going that route. I’m waiting for his annual checkup to see if they recommend an eye doc this year.

  5. I can’t believe school is already back in! I do love these tips, eye exams are so important for kids (and adults)

  6. Thankfully my daughter has never needed glasses but some of my nephews do and it makes such a difference to them when they can actually see clearly at school.

  7. I just went to get my license renewed and my eyesight is a disaster! I should def get them checked out!

  8. Thanks for the reminder. The kids have not gotten checked in a while.

  9. Green is my favorite color! I love when my kids choose green but they usually like blues.

  10. My son just got a new prescription and a new pair of glasses for the school year. His are blue. 🙂 He says he doesn’t like them as much as the old ones, but I think it’s because he’s not use to these new ones yet. The lenses seem bigger, but I told him I’d get him a few more pairs, so he can switch it up.

  11. I look for comfort, style and price. I want son to be comfortable wearing his glasses without breaking the bank.

  12. You are definitely right about our children vision, it is so important to make sure they get there annual check up and we make sure it is good, it makes a difference at school!

  13. Picking out glasses can be a tricky thing for anyone – even if you’re picking them out for yourself! Looks like Visionworks has a great variety of style options and that is key for getting the best frames that you will wear often!

  14. I would never have thought to have my kindergartener’s vision tested this year, I only did because it was required and I am so glad I did because glasses were needed. I will check every year now.

  15. I loved getting glasses! They are so important. I couldn’t even see the board, so it is imperative to get your kids’ eyes checked!

  16. A yearly eye checkup is very important. These are cool frames from Visionworks. I love the colors.

  17. These look so sweet and grown up! I am glad they have them in loads of colors, helps to make them more personalized ready for school!

  18. It’s never easy for the kids to have to wear glasses, it’s so uncomfortable especially if you’re a physically active person. Finding the perfect frame will help them a lot! I think this is an awesome suggestion.

  19. I love this program for kids! None of my three kids need glasses, but since I did in middle school it could be in the future.

  20. I think the bright blue frames are super cute! Nice that they have lots of options that appeal to kids.

  21. It’s not easy to choose a glasses, either for ourselves or for the kids. It’s great to be reminded how important it is to have eyes exam. Visionworks has a great selection of style, the frame colors are just gorgeous.

  22. I don’t know if my kids need glasses yet, but I certainly do. I think if you can show kids how much better they will be able to see with the glasses and convince them that it makes them look as smart as they are then hopefully they will be more comfortable wearing them.

  23. This reminds me that I really need to get my eyes checked again! I first got glasses when I was in my freshman year of high school. But the last time I was there though they told me I needed bifocals. Ugh.

  24. I love the pops of green trends! Kids need so much for back to school these days and it’s such a big deal.

  25. Right now I have to wear bifocals at 40 because I didn’t take care of vision as I should when I was younger and so I make sure to check my kids eyes on the regular my daughter just got reading glasses (she’s 9) but it’s suppose to correct her vision..

  26. Vision checks are so important! I love how much variety this company offers too and that they don’t cost an arm and a leg.

  27. It’s great that there are good options for kids to pick out eyewear they love at Vision Works. Vision is so important to kids’ learning!

  28. I love the idea of going with a bold color for specs. I had pink ones when I was little and totally loved them!

  29. My girl needed glasses and I was so glad I got her vision checked when I did. She loves her glasses!

  30. I have had to wear glasses since I was itty bitty!!! It was always such a pain as a kid wearing them. Now that I’m an adult though I kinda like my glasses.

  31. Wow, this is really amazing! It’s awesome to see that they have so many colors to choose from so picking the right one for your child won’t be an issue!

  32. Kids are so rough on glasses so we try to pick the pair that seems like they would be the most durable! We get so mad when the kids break their glasses but really – they should have more kid-friendly designs!

  33. I was just thinking about the fact that I need to get my kids into see if they need glasses. My husband got his at a very young age. I didn’t get mine until a little later, but I know my kids will need them most likely!

  34. I remember when I was a kid, I thought the coolest pair of frames were these maroon-colored circular shaped frames with little dolphins on the sides. I don’t know why, they looked so silly on me, but I loved them lol. Even when my head outgrew them, I was so adamant about wanting that same pair of frames xD These frames look much cooler and stylish!

  35. This is wonderful. Everyone talks about yearly doctors appt and dentist appts but you never really hear of eye exams and they are just as important. Its great that they have so many colors and styles for kids to choose from. I love that kids can express themselves in this way.

  36. It’s actually just about time for my eye exam so I am looking forward to getting some new frames that fit my style but I also realize how important the exams are. The work VisionWorks is doing to help children in need is amazing.

  37. I just scheduled my son’s first eye exam with his physical this week. I know how important it is to take care of your vision!
