Great Glasses Play Day Success!
This month saw Chittick Family Eye Care along with Chambanamoms host the annual Great Glasses Play Day.
The Great Glasses Play Day is a day to celebrate glasses and our children who need them. It is meant to be a day of imaginative play, celebration, and support. It was developed to support children who wear glasses or who have other vision issues, and their families, and to celebrate the advances in eyewear that not only allows our children to see more clearly, but also act as a way to express our children’s unique style.
“It was a day of imaginative play, celebration and support”
It also serves to educate parents about the importance of early eye exams by an eye care professional and vision screenings in addition to follow up treatment of any issues that are identified. So many eye issues go undiagnosed and untreated, and not treating the problems can lead to a lifetime of blindness.
“…vision is really important for our children.”
The event was held at the Douglas Community Center on May 7. Children from all backgrounds joined together and spent the day playing and taking part in a number of various activities including crafts, story-time, coloring pages, riding bikes around the arena and taking a countless number of pictures with the very special guest, Queen Elsa.
Chittick Family Eye Care and Chambanamoms believe that vision is really very important for our children, and we love that glasses, contacts, and patches can help them see better. We strongly believe that we can support one another and that our children will enjoy seeing others in glasses.
We are extremely excited about next year’s event and cannot wait to see and meet all the new faces. Thanks for all those who attended and who helped coordinate and organize this amazing event. See you next year!
