  Children's Eye Foundation.

- Donations of frames to kids in need through Prevent Blindness of Northern CA

- Peeps Eyewear's founder is an executive board member of Prevent Blindness Wisconsin and supports vision screenings throughout
  Wisconsin.

- Book readings at libraries and other venues. Contact us if you'd like to host a reading in your community!

- GreatGlassesBookStore.com has awesome children's books and book reviews related to kids and glasses.

Early Vision Screening


We are dedicated to making a difference in children's lives by increasing awareness about the importance of early vision screening and testing, and we support organizations such as Prevent Blindness, an organization dedicated to fighting blindness and saving sight.  If identified early, visually impaired children can often improve their vision by wearing glasses and/or patches.


Creative Play

 

Kids love to dress-up and make-believe they can be anything they want to be.  It is an essential part of early childhood development and encourages creativity, self-esteem. and expressing feelings.   There are several books and studies on this topic.  Here are a couple of our favorites:

 

The Case for Make Believe: Saving Play in a Commercialized World By Susan Linn
A Place for Play: A Companion Volume to the Michigan Television Film "Where Do the Children Play?" By Elizabeth N. Goodenough
