Eye Care Center to Give Away Backpacks Filled With School Supplies to Children

Pomona, CA (PRWEB) August 13, 2013

As children head back to school after the summer break, the Eye Care Center (ECC) at Western University of Health Sciences reminds parents that good vision is critical to learning.

The ECC is giving away a limited number of backpacks filled with school supplies as an incentive to bring your child in for a comprehensive eye examination. August is Children’s Eye Health and Safety Month.

“Eighty percent of what we learn comes through our vision, so we need to make sure the information we receive is clear and that our sight is good,” said Kristi Jensen, OD, FCOVD, Chief of Vision Therapy Services. “When we are getting ready for school and getting our school supplies, we also need to make sure our vision is ready to receive the information that’s going to be taught to us.”

Please call 885-279-0414, a toll-free number, to make an appointment for your child, and use coupon code EYEHEALTHMONTH.

Free backpacks are available at the completion of your child’s comprehensive eye examination, while supplies last. Patients are seen by appointment only at the Eye Care Center in the Patient Care Center, 795 E. Second Street, Pomona, CA 91766.
