The Play Hard. Don’t Blink. program provides qualifying children a free pair of prescription sports goggles.

Does Your Child Already Wear Glasses?
Now you can protect them from getting injured when they play sports by getting a free pair of prescription sports goggles. Regular eyeglasses and contacts will not protect a child’s eyes from injury and may even increase the damage caused should an impact occur.



Even if no eye or vision problems are apparent, the American Optometric Association recommends scheduling your baby’s first eye assessment at 6 months.

InfantSEE®, a public health program, managed by Optometry Cares® – the AOA Foundation, is designed to ensure that eye and vision care becomes an essential part of infant wellness care to improve a child’s quality of life. Under this program, participating optometrists provide a comprehensive infant eye assessment between 6 and 12 months of age as a no-cost public service.
