Win-It Wednesday: VSP Vision Care See Much More iPad Giveaway!

by Tara Kuczykowski on September 1, 2010 · 1,442 comments

Join me every week for Win-It Wednesday. I’ll be posting 24-hour giveaways at 8 a.m., 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. ET to give you plenty of chances to win!

Being able to see clearly and easily is key to a child's success in school. If you can't see what's going on, how can you possibly learn? As many as one in four kids won't be able to see properly as they head back to school. Annual eye exams can help undetected vision problems to be caught early so that children are getting the most out of school.

To highlight how important eye and vision health is I've teamed up with VSP Vision Care, the nation’s largest not-for-profit vision benefits and services company to offer you this amazing iPad giveaway. The iPad can help as several applications are built to boost visual acuity and overall eye health, making them perfect for doing eye exercises and keeping your eyes in shape.

Visit VSP's website, SeeMuchMore.com to find out what you can do for your vision, find out interesting eye facts, watch videos with Bill Nye the Science Guy, play video games and more!

It looks like you can save a bunch of money on eye checkups and glasses/contacts if you have VSP coverage. Either get it through your employer or purchase an individual plan.

2 Jen September 1, 2010 at 2:06 pm

I learned that the doctor can detect high blood pressure and colesterol just by looking at the eye!

By getting the eye exam they can tell if you have diabetes, high blood pressure or high cholesterol which I didn't know.

11 Cheryl Burnett September 1, 2010 at 2:11 pm

I had no idea you could tell about a person's health by the way the blood vessels look.

12 Marie P. September 1, 2010 at 2:12 pm

I learned that for every 20 minutes on the computer, stare at something 20 feet away for 20 seconds. Thats good to know since we're always on the computer.
