Did you know that 80 percent of what kids learn is absorbed through their eyes? Or that one in four school-age kids have an undetected eye problem? Since vision issues are frequently misdiagnosed as learning disabilities, making sure your child's eyes are in great shape is a top priority for health-conscious moms. Experts recommend that children get a comprehensive eye exam (not just at school) every year -- starting at 6 months old.


As part of its ongoing commitment to eye health and education, VSP Vision Care wants to give $1,000 to YOUR child's school in the name of healthy vision! VSP will donate $1,000 to the school of your choice for the purchase of eye-healthy technology or educational materials, such as computers, software programs, books, health services and more.

To enter, go to VSP's new website,, then leave a comment on this post describing one thing you learned about eye health from the site PLUS the name of the school you'd like to receive the funds. We'll select one commenter at random on November 8th to win. Good luck!

Exercise improves blood circulation, which improves oxygen levels to the eyes and the removal of toxins.
My daughter is in 2nd Grade:
Her school is “Woburn Street” in Wilmington, MA~ She has a great teacher and what better why to say thanks for all her efforts and the great school administration.
