Sight, more so than any of our senses, is vitally important as it helps us navigate the world around us. That isn’t just the case for adults – the development of your child’s eye sight shapes the world they see around them too.
Which is why we decided to support the launch of “Eye See A Dragon In The Glen” – a book designed to help check for vision issues in children. The book is raising money for leading Scottish children’s charity CHILDREN 1ST.
‘Eye See a Dragon in the Glen’ tells the simple story of a little Troll hunting in the Highlands. Importantly, the book was designed to include two key vision checks: a visual acuity test to check that both eyes see clearly; and a suppression test with 3D glasses to check both eyes are working well together. The tests were validated by Glasgow Caledonian University Vision Science Team.
To help celebrate World Book Day on March 6th, Optical Express are giving bloggers the opportunity to get a free copy of the book. We’ll also throw in a free eye test for you, your partner and your kids, with a 10% discount on any purchases too!
We’re looking for you to get creative with your kids! To enter the competition, we’d love to see you and your kids submit a new design for the cover of the book! It can be as simple or elaborate as you like!
Once you’re happy with the drawing, take a picture and put it on your blog with a link back here telling us why you chose to design the cover that way. Once you have done that, tweet us @opticalexpress with a link to your blog using the hashtag #eyeseeadragon or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your details!
Entries must be submitted before the closing date on 31st March 2014!
Good luck! We’re excited to see how creative you and your kids are!
