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!

I think my big takeaway from seemuchmore.com is that there are actual exercises you can do to strengthen your vision. Did I know that before? If I did, I didn't remember.

I will have some fun practicing with my 4 year old!

Thanks!

I learned that early reading and art actually aid physical development of kids’ vision.

I did not know the following: "I can see signs of diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol by looking at the blood vessels in your eyes."

7 Mary C September 9, 2010 at 9:41 pm

I am following both DSM and VSP on twitter, and I tweeted this.

I am a fan of both on Facebook. I'm not sure what kind of link to provide to show this. You can find me in the fans on both pages.

I found the 20-20-20 idea very helpful from VSP. I'm on the computer a lot, so hopefully that will help my eyes.

I had no idea about this one....

"When working on the computer, turn off overhead lights."

I would have thought the opposite (so that there wouldn'y be such a contrast) but I am definitely going to try this because I have noticed that my eyesight has gotten worse since I started staring at the computer all day at work!

I learned that certain medical issues like high cholesterol can be detected through an eye exam.

22 Erin September 12, 2010 at 5:45 pm

Reading & art early in life help kids' vision development! Who knew??

23 Melissa Lorusso September 12, 2010 at 6:07 pm

I had no idea that your vision could be connected to so many other things going on in your body: "Eye exams can detect signs of diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol."

24 Lynn September 12, 2010 at 6:18 pm

well I didnt realize that the eye doctor could see signs of diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol by looking at the blood vessels in your eyes...i just thought they examined my eyes/sight

25 Lynn September 12, 2010 at 6:20 pm
26 Lynn September 12, 2010 at 6:23 pm

like both on FB
I dont know how to share a link for those...???

27 Tammy September 12, 2010 at 6:37 pm

Eye exams can detect signs of diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol.

28 Kim September 12, 2010 at 6:52 pm

Transplanting whole eyes is a medical impossibility today, because of the thread that connects the eyes to the brain. This connection is called the optic nerve, and it cannot be severed.

29 Hana September 12, 2010 at 7:01 pm

I checked out seemuchmore.com. Thank you for the link. I did not know that "Eye exams can detect signs of diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol."

And also, I saw the main part was insurance that it covers and is seeking people to apply for it either with employee or through your own individual payment. I looked up my town to see if it covered my current eye doctor.

thanks. :o)

30 Hana September 12, 2010 at 7:02 pm

And also, yes, of course I am a fan of your's on Facebook. Excited to have found your great site. Thanks for helping all of us!

31 Barbara September 12, 2010 at 7:03 pm

I did not know that eye strain is the #1 computer complaint. I had better start doing those exercises for my eyes!

32 Amanda Dean September 12, 2010 at 7:05 pm

40 Patti September 12, 2010 at 10:32 pm

he thing I learned was that they could tell if your blood pressure or cholesterol is high just from your eye exam.

I also learned that my husband should still have his eyes checked every year even though he had Lasik surgery.

46 Tamilia September 12, 2010 at 11:39 pm

I didn't realize how much the eye doctor can tell just from an eye exam.

47 CindyJones September 12, 2010 at 11:46 pm

I learned that eye exams can detect things such as diabetes and high blood pressure. :)

48 Christina Braun September 13, 2010 at 12:56 am

I learned that your eyes are so much more than mirrors to your soul. Through your eyes it can be determined if you have High Blood Pressure,Diabetes or High Cholesterol. Your eyes are very important to your general health.
What a well done site, there is a lot of information available!

49 Jennae September 13, 2010 at 5:13 am

I never knew it was a good idea to turn off overhead lights when using the computer. I tend to have them off during the daytime, but now I know I should leave them off at night too.

50 Jennae September 13, 2010 at 5:18 am

I'm a fan of DSM and VSP on Facebook.

51 Mary September 13, 2010 at 7:53 am

I have strugged with a lazy eye my whole life. Undetected until too late for exercises. This would be wonderful for children with a lazy eye.
