Cohen’s Fashion Optical “Cares for Kids” Program Helps Parents Prepare Their Children For The New School Year With Free Eye Exams in September
With the approach of a new school year, there is no better time to make sure that your child’s eyes are ready for the demands of learning, and for extended hours viewing smart boards, screens and notebooks. Cohen’s Fashion Optical, a leader in the eyewear industry since 1927, knows how important good vision is to a child’s education and development. That is why the company has launched their Cohen’s “Cares For Kids” eye care program offering free eye exams* for children ages 5 – 16 through the month of September at participating Cohen’s locations in the five boroughs of New York City and Long Island.
Any difficulties with a child’s vision can quickly lead to difficulties in school. It is particularly important for children to have regular vision screenings as potential issues that might be present can be more easily corrected if caught earlier. Through the Cohen’s “Cares For Kids” program, parents can bring their school age children (5 – 16 years of age) into any participating Cohen’s location from Mondays through Fridays in September for a free eye exam (valued at $50) by a licensed Cohen’s optometrist to make sure their child’s eyes are in the best health for school.

“To ensure that your child is ready to face the challenges of the new school year, it is important to make sure that your child’s eyes are examined by a professional, said Bob Cohen, CEO, Cohen’s Fashion Optical. “We want to offer peace of mind for today’s parents and provide them with free eye exams to help kids get a healthy start to the new school year.”
There are a few signs that parents should be aware of when it comes to their child’s eye health. If a child squints while reading or watching television, has a tendency to avoid reading, has frequent headaches, rubs their eyes or is extremely sensitive to light, parents should immediately schedule a vision screening for their child.
