It’s back to school time!  How was your summer! Our summer, here at Dolabany, has been very busy. Man, the summertime sure does fly by!  

With the kids heading back to school, we wanted to share with you several of our kid, or petite, sized frames. We have five different TR90 frames to choose from for the kiddos:

 

Durable, Flexible, & Lightweight

 

TR90 is a thermoplastic material that is incredibly durable, flexible, and lightweight. Frames made with TR90 are extremely comfortable and are excellent for kids! 

Resilient to Damage

 

 

 

Due to the TR90 frame’s flexibility, it makes them resilient to damage. The TR90 frames are made for active adults and kids alike. Since the material is pliable, they are far less likely to break or bend from impact, especially in gym class or out on the playground. 

Hypoallergenic

Our TR90 frames are also hypoallergenic for those kiddos with sensitive skin, and are resistant to extreme high/low temperatures so no need to worry about our Dolabany Chef frames for kids while they are outside playing in the different weather elements!

August is National Children’s Eye Health & Safety Month

Along with getting the kids’ school supplies and physicals, it essential that you let your customers know that now is an excellent time for them also to have their children’s eyes examed.

August is National Children’s Eye Health and Safety Month. One of the essential ways to ensure a successful school year is to make your child’s sight a priority.

A good rule of thumb is to have your children’s eyes examined during well-child visits, beginning around age three. Your child’s eye doctor can help detect refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. They will also be able to identify the following diseases:

  • Amblyopia (lazy eye)
  • Strabismus (crossed eyes)
  • Ptosis (drooping of the eyelid)
  • Color deficiency (color blindness)

Amblyopia

Also known as Lazy Eye is decreased vision that results from abnormal visual development in infancy and early childhood.

Experts say that Amblyopia is the leading cause of decreased vision among children. This condition develops when nerve pathways between the brain and the eye aren’t stimulated correctly. As a result, the brain favors one eye, usually due to poor vision in the other eye causing the brain to ignore signals from the other eye. Treatment includes eye patches, eye drops, and glasses or contacts, or sometimes surgical treatment. 

 

Strabismus

Crossed eyes is a condition in which the eyes do not line up correctly. If your child has this disorder, his or her eyes will look in different directions, and each eye focuses on a different object.

Strabismus is very common, affecting four percent of children age 6 and younger. Nobody knows why some children are born with this condition, but it does tend to be hereditary. Crossed eyes can usually be corrected with eyeglasses and sometimes surgery.

 

Ptosis

Ptosis describes drooping of one or both eyelids and can be congenital (present at birth) or acquired. Ptosis can cause amblyopia, astigmatism, or permanent disfigurement if left untreated.

Some known causes of droopy eyelids are due to weak eyelid muscles, cranial nerve palsies, recurring infections, tumors of the eyelid or orbit, or even thyroid disease. If a virus causes the Ptosis, your doctor may prescribe antibiotics. And if Ptosis is more severe, the child may require surgery to correct the eyelid position.

 

Color Blindness

Color blindness is inherited caused by abnormal photopigments. These color-detecting molecules are located in cone-shaped cells within the retina, called cone cells. In humans, several genes are needed for the body to make photopigments, and defects in these genes can lead to color blindness.

There are three main kinds of color blindness, based on photopigment defects in the three different types of cones that respond to blue, green, and red light. Red-green color blindness is the most common, followed by blue-yellow color blindness. A complete absence of color vision, know as total color blindness, is rare.

Unfortunately, there is no “cure” for color blindness. Contact lenses and glasses are available with filters to help color deficiencies if the child and parents agree that it is best for the child.
