HEY YOU! FOUR EYES!
Yeah you. The one with the glasses. Thinking you look all cool and trendy with your Gucci frames.
Well, you kind of do. Actually, you look really hot. And since glasses have long been a fashion statement, I’m really digging your style. It’s obvious you love your eyes, and I do too.
It’s no surprise that I’m a huge supporter of Licensed Opticians across Canada. In fact, if you caught my Love Your Eyes posts last year, you’ll know that if there’s one thing I’m particular about, it’s eye health. And that’s why I’d never trust my pretty peepers to anyone but the pros.
Licensed Option 101:
An Optician is a licensed professional trained to help people see better – whether they’re near or far-sighted, or have low vision due to more complex eye health issues.
Opticians interpret vision prescriptions in order to fit and develop perfect lenses. They’re highly skilled, working to exact standards and precision, because creating the perfect lens requires attention to extremely fine detail. Using the latest technology, Licensed Opticians ensure lenses and frames have been created to meet national and international standards of precision.
(Translation: Although purchasing glasses off the Internet seems like a great money-saving idea, the truth is, buying prescription eyewear is not like shopping for books or clothes. In Canada, Licensed Opticians are regulated and guaranteed to be highly trained, follow a standard of care, ethical and accountable. And who wants to tamper with their eye health? That would be like biting the hand that feeds. Or poking the eye that sees. #badjoke #yougetmydrift)
Okay, so why all this talk about eyes? World Sight Day is an annual day of awareness held on the second Thursday of October to focus global attention on blindness and vision impairment. As a countdown to the celebration of World Sight Day, Love Your Eyes is giving away prizes every week – for five weeks – from Friday, September 6th to Thursday, October 10th.
So, here’s the scoop. Head on over to www.weloveyoureyes.ca. Answer the daily questions on vision care. Every question you answer garners you an entry into the current and all the following week’s prize draws. Answer as many questions as you can to increase your chances of winning!
Not only will you have the opportunity to win fabulous prizes, you’ll also learn a ton about vision care, eye treatments, myths, facts and more. The first prize up for grabs is an Apple iPad mini – not too shabby! (Between you and I – I’m going for the MacBook Air. After all, hipsters wearing designer frames need a designer laptop too, no?)
And the GRAND PRIZE? A $3,000 President’s Choice Shopping Spree! SHAZAM!
Be sure to pop by daily – and take care of those peepers!
