As a mother of five, I know how difficult it is to get your grown children to make eye contact with you, let alone get them to the optometrist for a check up. Even though the oldest two boys are 18 and 20 years old, I am still the one to make their healthcare appointments, make sure they get there on time and follow-up with any further treatment. Thankfully, for British Columbian parents with grown kids who still need looking after, Image Optometry has a fantastic special offer for everyone.
Not only are they offering a free pair of eyeglasses with every $89.95 eye test, but when two of you book an appointment, and both have an eye test before December 31st, Image Optometry will give you a free pair of Canucks tickets. You can choose from any one of these games:
Jan 4th – Canucks vs. Coyotes
Jan 15th – Canucks vs. Devils
Jan17th – Canucks vs. Predators
Feb 2nd – Canucks vs. Sharks
Feb 4th – Canucks vs. Flyers
March 9th – Canucks vs. Islanders
March 16th – Canucks vs. Stars
What a fabulous bribe for those reluctant young adults especially as there are a number of reasons why an eye test is of particular importance for this age group.
- The teen years are a prime time for the development of nearsightedness. A teenagers sight can change so slowly they do not realise they are developing a problem. By the time they hit their 20’s they should still have regular tests to ensure these changes have not occurred. An appointment with an optometrist will assess both the quality of your loved one’s eyesight and their eye health.
- Having a family history of eye disease, poor vision, diabetes, or high blood pressure may increase your teen’s risk of developing eye problems.
- Eyes can be injured while playing sport and the seriousness of an eye injury might not be obvious immediately. Young adults who suffer an injury should see their optometrist as soon as possible to ensure there is no damage to their eyes or sight.
If that wasn’t enough to get your new adult to the optometrist you can let them know Image Optometry are the official eye doctors of the BC Lions, the Vancouver Canucks and the Vancouver Whitecaps, so they are in excellent company.
So get on the net right now and visit Image Optometry to book an eye exam online. It took us less than a minute to book, and I dropped my two young men off at our local branch while I went to do some last minute Christmas shopping. With 17 offices, the majority of which are in shopping malls, Image Optometry is the largest, most convenient, most affordable eye care chain in BC and you are sure to find a branch near you.
Half an hour later I picked up a couple of slightly less sceptical kids and a pair of Canucks tickets. Their new glasses are included in the $89.95 eye test cost and Image direct bill your insurance company, so I wasn’t out of pocket at all!
Hopefully, we’ll bump into you on the 2nd when the Sharks are going to lose – GO CANUCKS!
