Now that we’ve addressed children’s summer eye health and UV safety, it’s time to focus on back-to-school readiness. As parents prepare for the back-to-school season, eye exams may not always be at the top of their to-do list.

Encouraging children to wear glasses may not be the easiest task. R&D Optical offers a wide array of frame and lens options to please kids and parents alike. Our SunShifters are children’s frames that change color when exposed to ultraviolet light. They are available in nearly two dozen style and size combinations and feature fun colors like fuchsia and light blue.
