To children with a vision impairment,
blurred vision is normal.

That’s why children rely on their parents, teachers and community
to be advocates for their vision care.

Why Take the Pledge as a Parent?

Your children rely on you to be an advocate
for their vision care.


Clear vision is essential for children, since 80 percent of learning in a child’s first 12 years is through their eyes. Yet one in four school children in the United States has a vision problem significant enough to affect learning.

Children with undiagnosed vision issues often have trouble reading and doing their schoolwork and may act up in class, which can lead to a misdiagnosis of learning disabilities. In fact, 44 percent of parents are not aware that behavioral problems can be an indication that a child’s vision is impaired.

Make sure your child has clear vision by participating in the Essilor 20/20 Vision Pledge.

Commit to seek your child’s best vision. You can be entered for a chance to win a comprehensive exam and glasses for your child, and glasses for their entire school!

Sweepstake ends on September 25, 2019.

How to Use the Pledge in Your School

You know how important clear vision is for children, but your students’ parents may not.
Children rely on their parents, teachers and schools to be advocates for their vision care.

Chances are many parents don’t know that their children should have a complete eye exam at age six months, again at age three and before their child starts school. Additionally, it is estimated that nearly a quarter of parents do not pursue full vision exams for their children due to lack of financial resources.
