Did you know that many of today’s student’s who struggle academically do so because they cannot see the board? It’s an often overlooked issue simply because of the negative stigma behind wearing classes. The wonderful people at OptiWow sponsored an amazing event to celebrate children who wear glasses and donate hundreds of free totally cool eyeglass frames for children in our community. Plus, they put on a great event with fun activities for the whole family. These kids were so excited!
As a kid, I too struggled in school because I couldn’t see the board and often times had difficulty seeing the text in our books. I truly wished there was something around like this when I was young. My frame fate wasn’t as hip as today’s kiddies. I ended up with some transparent pink plastic ( cool factor -100) not so attractive frames which helped me excel in school. The teasing was intense to say these least and by 6th grade I was in contact lenses STAT. Man do our kids have it great with all these options!
