ALEXANDRIA, Va., Aug. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- With 80 percent of learning coming through the eyes according to Think About Your Eyes, this back-to-school season, it's more important than ever to make sure kids are equipped with the correct eyewear for their unique vision needs that will make them feel confidently cool – both in and out of the classroom.

As per Think About Your Eyes, 24 percent of parents wait for their children to have symptoms before taking them to an eyecare provider, which can be problematic because kids don't understand what "normal" vision entails.
Why wait? Whether a child is in the classroom, on the playground, or at home after school, eyeglasses and sunglasses ought to be their go-to accessories. After all, eyewear can be used to do the following:
