Educate Yourself About Your Eyes with Help from Zeiss Education Tools!

My entire family needs glasses!  I have worn glasses since I was 2 years old.  Recently I just switched to contacts and after a few rough weeks, I am loving them!  Travis didn't need glasses until later in life and it seems that we have passed our vision problems to our children.  I first noticed that Bella was crossing her eyes when she was three years old, so we made a trip to the eye doctor and sure enough she needed glasses to correct her vision.  With Sam I knew what to look for and he received his first pair of glasses at only two years old, like me. 

I remember when Bella received her first pair of glasses.  She was amazed at all of the things she could see!  Travis said the same thing about his first pair.  Riding in the car on the way home he noticed that he could see the individual leaves on the trees whereas before he could just make out a green mass.  Choosing the right lenses can make your vision sharper and lead to a better and more fulfilling life!  Zeiss has created a website that you can browse before your next eye appointment to educate yourself on questions you need to ask your eye doctor, finding an eye doctor and much more!

After browsing their FREE Educational Tools, I learned a lot that I didn't already know about vision and lenses.  For instance, did you know that you should take your kids to the eye doctor at the ages 6 months, three years and when beginning school?  Then you should take them every other year even if they don't have any vision problems.  I know lots of parents that haven't ever taken their kids to an eye doctor...  I'm not saying that they are bad parents by any means, but it's just not something you always think of doing if your child's vision seems fine.

There is so much great information you can learn from these FREE Educational Tools from Zeiss!  Zeiss is a leading maker of lenses.  Zeiss Individual® is the first progressive lens to integrate how your frames, face and prescription work together for a one-of-a-kind lens that is precisely personalized for the wearer.  ZEISS technology is used to create these customized progressive lenses, which are clinically proven to be preferred by consumers over conventional progressive lenses to improve their vision and quality of eyesight.
