Excitement for back to school can be heard in the giddiness of children picking out their new school clothes and supplies, the rolling of the shopping carts across the tile floors, and click of cameras everywhere as parents snap pictures of their children on the first day.
Today, I want to point out one more thing that should be considered at back to school time. Sight and sound play a huge role in a childs’ education, therefore it’s important for us as parents to guarantee they have the best possible chance at success. One way to do that is by taking your child in for an eye exam.
How can JCPenney Optical help during back to school?
Sometimes children are born with an eye condition, however it’s not typically recognized until school age. With L, I knew something wasn’t right just before age 3. Our immediate family didn’t have a history of eye conditions, but I followed my gut instinct and made a pediatric eye doctor appointment anyway. Sure enough, he was diagnosed with a few conditions, one of those being estropia – that’s when one eye turns inward.
The doctor said we had a fighting chance to correct his vision because it was caught so early. I was so relieved! He’s worn corrective glasses ever since, and gets quarterly check-ups with his eye doctor. His eye conditions have improved greatly over the last 2 years, and we couldn’t be happier.
Doesn’t he looks super cute in his Arizona red metal frames from JCPenney Optical?

Your son is absolutely adorable. What’s more is he looks and will be even smarter in school because he has one of the most important tools of success to do his best: 20/20 vision.
He DOES look cute and I love JC Penney’s!
JCP is a great resource! This post really resonates with me as my husband has had 2 emergency eye surgeries this summer. It’s so important to care for our eyes!
Wow Debra – I hope he’s okay now!

Sounds like a great deal. I could use another pair the kids keep breaking mine.

I am glad that your son was able to get help. JCP really has everything.
My boys have regular check ups because they were preemies – so important to see how their eyes have changed and if they need glasses. So far no need but I’m glad we have stayed on top of checking them.
That’s great Kerrie!

This is a great deal, I love JC Pennys! 🙂 My 7 year old daughter just found out she needed glasses about 6 months ago. I love the cute styles that they have for her to choose from!
