Disclosure: A gift card was provided to attend the event. Al opinions are 100% my own.
I was invited to the Safilo studio to preview their new line of glasses for kids ages 0-8. I had never even heard of Safilo, but my son wears glasses and we go through so much trouble with them I wanted to learn more.
Kids By Safilo is a new eyewear collection designed for children with a medical-scientific approach and engineered with advanced technologies and materials.
These glasses are absolutely adorable and are perfect for kids. Some of the features:
Bio based and non toxic
Stay firm on nose (no annoying hinges or metal parts)
light weight design
fun and colorful
made 100% in Italy
I loved viewing these glasses they are made for everyday challenges that kids go through. You don’t have to worry about them biting on the ear pieces or bending them.
In addition to seeing their showroom, I was able to talk with 3 leading experts on kids eye vision and why it is so important.
A parent will take their child to the dentist before getting a eye exam.
This event was so important to me, because I am one of those parents that never noticed the signs. My son was in first grade and started complaining about having to walk up to the board in school to see, I just thought that he was back to far. Then I got a call from the nurse, he failed his eye exam. I took him to get a eye exam, and felt so bad. His vision is horrible including a high astigmatism, Far sighted in one eye, near in the other.
He received his glasses and the first thing he said was “The world seems so big”
It’s absolutely important to get your child a vision exam, even if you don’t think anything is wrong.
