As the summer comes to an end, back to school shopping is in full swing and your child’s backpack is getting full! It pays off to be prepared – your child will have everything they need to succeed in the school year. But being prepared doesn’t just mean supplies and new clothes, it also involves something critical: clear vision and healthy eyesight. Back to school glasses might just be the most important item that your child needs to get that A+ in class.
It can be a challenge to find the perfect fit and style of glasses, but styles these days can really showcase your child’s personality! The first step is to find the size of glasses that fit your child’s eyes and head best. When you come into any Hakim Optical location, our staff will gladly assist you in finding the perfect fit. Once you find your child’s size of frame and lens, you can move on to choosing styles.
Your child might not be aware that having glasses can really help them in their favourite activities and their schoolwork. Vision problems are one of the most common disabilities in children, with one in four school-age children experiencing some form of vision problem. Unfortunately, they often go undetected. It is very important to stay on top of your child’s vision and ensure they get comprehensive vision tests on a regular basis.
Children tend to not have the ability to recognize that something is wrong with their vision. Even asking your child if they are having trouble seeing might not help – being proactive and getting an eye exam before school is the only way you will know for sure. This also promotes good eye health from a young age and prepares them for success.
Hakim Optical currently has our Back to School promo in motion, which allows you to purchase several pairs of glasses for much lower prices! Your child can choose a few styles of back to school glasses they like most and switch between them whenever they’d like!
Here at Hakim Optical, we go to great lengths to help out as much as we can with all of your vision needs! You can book a comprehensive eye exam for your child with one of our fully qualified optometrists through our Eye Exam Centre here.
