Back to School with Sears Optical #Giveaway #backtoschool

Kari shares her insights on the importance of eye exams before school starts with this Sears Optical Giveaway. All opinions listed are her own.

School starts for my kids next week. Back-to-school time really seemed to sneak up on us this year. It feels like just yesterday we were celebrating our first lazy days of summer break. And, now…we are frantically rushing around trying to get organized and take care of our last minute back-to-school shopping.

We’ve had paper, pencils, and folders to buy as well as backpacks, shoes, clothing, and uniforms to choose. We have stocked up on printer paper and ink and planned out school lunches and looked up bus schedules.

One more very important task on our back-to-school list is getting our yearly eye exams.

Two of my children wear glasses and contacts – making sure that their prescriptions are up to date and their eyes are healthy is a priority. They are both teenagers, so not only is it important to stay on top of their vision needs, but also to make sure they have stylish and comfortable glasses to wear. Having a trusted place to get eye exams and purchase attractive, high-quality eyewear makes the process a whole lot easier.

During the back-to-school season, consumers can take advantage of Sears Optical™ special offers for the entire family.

  1. Kelly D says

    My best eye care tip is to have a full examination of your eyes every year. I always like to make sure my eyes are healthy as well as making sure I don’t need an adjustment in my prescription.

  2. Tammy S says

    My best eye care tip is to always wear protective eye wear when you are working in the yard or on a project that could have flying bits and pieces.

  3. CherylS22 says

    Get your eyes checked once a year & be sure to keep your eyes as moist as possible.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  4. Susan P. says

    If you’re at the computer all day, once every hour or so, get up and walk around and give your eyes a chance to focus on other distances.

  5. Tabitha P. says

    My best tip is to go once a year.
    Just suck it up and go.
    And take your kids early and yearly too.
    get them used to people messing with their eyes.

  6. cheryla lister says

    Get regular eye exams. My husband would have had no idea he had glaucoma, except for his regular yearly exam.

  7. says

    Make sure you sit with the appropriate distance between you and the computer screen also make sure to take breaks from your electrical device and look away at points further than your screen

  8. Dorinne Hammons says

    Take breaks from the computer or reading to rest your eyes – a five minute break every hour is great!

  9. ACMommy3 says

    Hmmm, well besides yearly checkups for everyone in the family, drinking lots of water, not rubbing eyes, avoiding eye strain and reducing hours spent in front of screens are all helpful for eye health!

  10. Jean says

    Be faithful about annual checkups and WEAR your glasses if you need them. It’s amazing how many people strain their eyes rather than wear prescription glasses or contacts.

  11. Jenny Martin says

    I don’t follow my own tips–but take breaks from the computer every hour, and change your contacts according to the schedule!

  12. Sheila Vives says

    When you sit at a computer for long periods of time, it is drying to the eyes. Over-dryness leads to damage. Moisturize your eyes with a home-made saline solution. 1/4 teaspoon of salt to 1 cup of warm water in a sterile container. Use an eye cup or freshly washed hands to rinse out eyes. Be sure the water is not hot so not to burn your eyes. You can also use an over-the-counter eye drop, but make sure it is free from harmful ingredients and preservatives. Natural saline is best.

  13. Victoria Carlson says

    Go to the eye doctor once a year, even if you don’t have bad vision! They are great for overall eye health!

  14. Kerrie Mayans says

    My best eye care tip is to make sure to take out your contacts and clean them daily to give your eyes a break while you are sleeping.

  15. Danielle Papsis says

    Wear Sunglasses throughout the year, not just when it’s hot and sunny, but when it’s cold and sunny too.

  16. Michelle Hudak says

    My best tip is to buy some eyeglass cleaning wipes and keep them in your purse, car and at work for cleaning your glasses.

  17. Kelly Brown says

    Oh gosh, I would say to never neglect seeing your eye doctors. Your vision is one of the most fantastic senses that we have.

  18. Teresa Moore says

    My daughter just started wearing glasses back in May. I have found that her keeping up with her glasses and putting them in a case after she is done with them is best to keep them safe.

  19. katklaw777 says

    My Dad was an eye doctor and I’d say my best tip would be to have an annual vist to make sure everything is Aokay!

  20. Carl L Smith Jr says

    Have more Vitamin A in your diet , and there are actually eye exercises you can do! you can find great eye exercises online

    (Again, not sure if the 1st post went thru – want to make sure I do the entry right!!!)

  23. T.h.Ransom says

    My best tip is to make sure to wear your glasses, if needed, when reading etc. Otherwise your eyes may get worse if they are constantly straining.

  24. Paula V says

    Get your exam yearly. Also, I wear contacts and I never remove them without washing hands and always remove them nightly.

  25. kyla says

    You wouldn’t believe how much eyes change every year depending on activity, so get there when you can, especially if insurance pays for it!
