What A Beautiful Sight

March 7, 2015

Wondering how you can take care of your vision and help a child in need of vision care? One in four children has an undiagnosed vision problem. Right now, when you purchase an individual vision insurance plan fromย VSP Directโ„ข for as low as $17/month, a child in need receives a free eye exam and glasses, up to a retail value of $1 million. Find out more atย Thanks to VSP for sponsoring this post.

I’m lost without my glasses (or contacts)…

Before I had gone to the eye exam that would change my life at 16 years old, I had been putting up with blurry vision.ย  I didn’t know what I was missing.ย  I had the exam and glasses changed how I saw the world.ย  Everything was clear and I saw so many more details in the world around me.ย  It was pretty exciting (totally cheesy, but completely the truth!).

Years later, I’m now a mother and the importance of taking care of my vision is even more important for me…and my children too!ย  From watching my little girls play to seeing them grow, I use my sight everyday and couldn’t be more thankful for the vision I have (well…there are a few things I wish I didn’t see like the time that Mabel dumped all the lotion all over the floor in her room…but that’s another story).ย  And here is a random tidbit for all of you mommas out there:ย  Did you know that by age 5, children should have had 3 eye exams?

Even Mabel knows the importance of protecting her vision…or maybe she just loves pink glasses. ๐Ÿ˜‰

And here comes my motherly spiel:ย  get a yearly eye exam to protect the vision you have!ย  And if you think it’s too expensive…it’s not!ย  You can get vision insurance through VSP Direct for as little at $17 a month.ย  That covers and eye exam, an allowance for glasses and contacts, and is 100% satisfaction guaranteed!ย  That’s just a little price to pay in order to ensure that you’ll get the most out life and your sight!

VSP Direct is also doing a really great thing for children in need through their #EyeGiveBack campaign:ย  through June 30th, with each vision care purchase, they are donating an eye exam and a pair of glasses to a child!ย  Being a glasses wearer myself and a mother, this truly means a lot to me knowing that kids who otherwise couldn’t afford vision care will be the recipients of a really great gift.ย  Can you envision the wonderful impact this campaign will have?ย  With 1 in 4 kiddos having an undetected vision problem and the fact that 20% of kiddos have trouble reading due to vision issues, this campaign will change a lot of childrens’ lives by helping them out!

This is how excited you’ll make those children!
