Last year, when Dexter started Kindergarten, we had his eyes tested to make sure that all was well. To our surprise, we found out that he actually needed glasses! It was a bit of a shock, but we made sure he was well equipped for school with some plain green frames. Of course, within the first two months, he had broken them on the school playground and had to move on to a new pair.
Who’d have ever thought that a six year old would suddenly become fashion conscious? Out of nowhere, he began asking for a new pair of glasses – some that would match his personality more than the basic frames we’d invested in. I promised him that he could pick out a new pair from JCPenney Optical before school started this year. JCPenney is where my mother always took me when I was a kid for Back to School shopping, and I’ve always been a big fan of their selection.
Plus, JCPenney Optical has $39.99 Back to School Glasses for kids! The sale includes a large selection of frames, impact-resistant lenses and an eyewear protection plan! This gives me (and moms everywhere) peace of mind that even if we have another playground accident, we’re covered.
Right now you can enter the JCPenney Optical Back to School Photo Contest for a chance to win amazing and eye-catching prizes just in time for the new school year. Simply share your favorite back to school photos of yourself or your family members for a chance to win prizes from JCPenney Optical and JCPenney Portraits!

Whatever you’re doing to get your kids ready for the new school year, remember that getting an eye checkup is super important and can help them on their journey to fulfilling their full learning potential. It’s especially crucial for younger kids who are learning to read.
