Customers for Life! [Holly Forstad]
Every summer we host a back-to-school event for the children (and parents) of our community.
Our team of Optometrists provide Free comprehensive eye exams to any child entering kindergarten. One in four children have a vision problem that affects their ability to learn! Our intention is to encourage yearly eye exams by an Optometrist so that a thorough evaluation and correct diagnosis can be determined, rather than simply relying on school vision screeners to detect problems.
This year we upped the fun factor by having our local ice cream shop park their food truck in our parking lot and giving out free ice cream cones for all! We also had face painting, hula hooping, bean bag tossing, a photo booth, and sidewalk chalk drawings. We gave out goody bags filled with eye health related toys and treats, along with a brochure reinforcing our message of yearly eye exams.
We also took the opportunity to show off our amazing selection of kids frames, and review our unbeatable kids package. Purchase a frame and get Trivex lenses with Blue light blocking AR for free?...Yes, please!
We hope to build healthy habits, and that these children will grow up to be our patients and customers for life.
