It’s almost time for kids to be back in the classroom and with that means its time for a wardrobe change including glasses. As parents flock to back-to-school sales in coming weeks, you’ll want to add eyeglasses to the pens, school uniforms, laptops and backpacks on your child’s back-to-school supplies list.Why?Your son or daughter may be among the one in four children in the U.S. with a vision impairment significant enough to affect their ability to learn. Why is seeing clearly in the classroom so important? It’s said that 80 percent of what a child learns through age 12 is through their eyes. Children’s vision issues impact every aspect of their life, from learning, confidence and social interaction to participation in activities such as sports, art and music.If you child needs – or your children need – glasses, the back-to-school Student Special here at Schmidt’s Optical and Hearing™ in Stuart Florida will save you money. Right now we are offering students free poly-carbonate lenses with the purchase of a frame. Whether your child is near-sided or far-sided we can make a new pair of glasses for them the same day. Plus if you have a flexible spending account or health savings account you can tap those funds to cut your family’s eyewear costs further.
