Every year, as inevitable as that very first morning bell, your child’s school requires your little one to take an Arizona eye exam.
And because the exam is performed by the school nurse, you might just think that this in-school vision screening may be everything your child needs when it comes to maintaining healthy vision year after year.
But unfortunately, that fact couldn’t be further from the truth.
Every sun-kissed, popsicle-craving, sprinkler-on-the-lawn-loving child knows: September means saying goodbye to those colorful Arizona sunglasses and saying hello to a binder-sized pencil pouch chock-full of school supplies.
And though your little one may not be looking forward to trading in those grass-stained shorts for a fresh school year wardrobe, the back to school to do list doesn’t just end at backpacks, ballpoint pens, and blouses: your son or daughter should also have a back to school Arizona eye exam before they hit the books.
You’ve been hearing it since you were three years old. You’ve read it in magazines, you’ve heard it during your annual Arizona eye exam, and you’ve seen it on pamphlets at the doctor’s office: carrots are good for your eyes.
For some, making the decision to undergo Arizona cataract surgery is an easy one. Maybe they’ve been living with foggy vision for months. Maybe they’ve been experiencing difficulty reading. Maybe they’ve even had to refrain from doing daily activities because of seriously impaired vision.
In celebration of Healthy Vision Month, we’re blogging throughout the month of May (and beyond!) to keep you informed of the latest Arizona eye care advice. As we’re sure your doctor mentioned, an Arizona eye exam is more important than ever throughout the summer season, when extreme heat and hazardous UV rays are most likely to threaten the health of your eyes.
Attention Arizona, eye care is more important in May than other months of the year. Why? Not only because the summer is upon us - don’t forget to keep your sunglasses handy! – but because May is Healthy Vision Month, a national eye health observance established by the National Eye Institute in 2003.
It's Earth Week, everyone - celebrate by making small strides toward a comprehensively greener lifestyle with Arizona designer eyeglass frames that benefit the environment.
From turning off the tap to using less paper, there are a myriad of ways you and your family can benefit mother nature by reducing your carbon footprint. And yes - even your glasses and sunglasses can go green this year; Nationwide Vision carries eyewear brands on a mission to tangibly improve the environment.
When most people think “Arizona eye care,” they think about sunglasses. They think about LASIK.
They think about annual eye exams and glaucoma prevention and picking the perfect prescription lenses. And though each of those steps on the road to healthy vision is an important one, there’s one that many people unfortunately overlook: sports-related blindness and eye injuries.
The minute you walk in to any one of our Nationwide Vision locations, you’ll notice them immediately: Arizona glasses as far as the eye can see.
Red frames, green frames, even Geoffrey Beene frames. Here at Nationwide, we make sure to carry every style to match your every style. Here are just a few of our favorite frames for every personality:
