Importance of Eye Exams

One minute we are searching the aisles of the grocery store in search of sunscreen, beach towels or a new swimsuit. And the next, the aisles quickly transition to “Back-to-School” advertisements filled with school supplies, books, and locker decorations. 

We get so caught up in the sunshine and before we know it – School is just around the corner! As we prep for the new school year, we tend to forget one major detail: EYE EXAMS. 

An eye exam is essential for your child’s vision, eye health and learning ability.  

American Optometric Association states, “Up to 80% of learning is visual.”  

It is important to have your child’s eyes checked within at least one month into the new school year to ensure they have solid vision skills to make it a successful year.

Everything you need to know about detecting your child’s vision is in the graphic below, thanks to Lens Crafters


Moral of the story: make eye exams part of your yearly “back to school” check list. If you do happen to find out that your child needs glasses, lucky for you, we know just the spot! At Jonas Paul Eyewear, we provide stylish children’s eyewear to increase confidence amongst child, all at an accessible price point.

Partnership with Restoring Vision

Restoring Vision started out of need and desire to help. Founder, Mark Sachs, has always been apart of the optical industry but never saw an overwhelming need for glasses until after his trip to Albania and Mexico in 1994.

Mark was inspired to provide glasses to those in developing countries. Fast forward to today, with over 1,400 organizations involved in his mission, they have distributed over 6 million pairs of glasses to those in need!

As more people are helping, more people are helped.

Eyeglasses often are either inaccessible or unaffordable, forcing hundreds of millions of people to live below their full potential. 

At Jonas Paul Eyewear, with every pair of kids glasses purchased, we make donations to provide corrective children’s eyeglasses. 

Over 15,000 childrens have changed through our impact with Restoring Vision.
