Welcome back-to-school Houston-area students! We hope your school year is off to a great start. It’s a busy time of year, but one of the most important tasks on your back-to-school list should be “comprehensive eye exam appointment.” Yearly eye exams should be part of your back-to-school routine just like new sneakers and school supplies.
Education + Eye Health
Even small changes in vision can result in eye strain, headaches, and blurred vision, which is distracting for young learners. A yearly eye exam means your student will always have an up-to-date prescription, and you will have a regular opportunity to ask questions and get recommendations from a professional. Parents, make sure to check if you have Flexible Spending Account or Health Savings Account money to use before the end of the year—eyeglasses are a great way to use those pre-tax FSA or HAS dollars.
