Mothers Day Giveaway – Vision Care to a Family in Need


This is a Sponsored Post but all opinions are my own.

Happy Mothers Day everyone!

Almost three years ago, I finally got vision insurance. When I got my eyes checked, and got some new glasses, I could not believe that I was not seeing clearly all this time! I did not know that my eyes had slowly gotten worse, after having 20/20 through childhood. For the last 3 years, every single time that I put on my glasses, I am so happy to see life in HI-DEF.

We have a special treat for you today for the special occasion. We have partnered with VSP vision insurance, the nation’s only not-for-profit vision care company, and we are giving away VSP Direct™ individual vision insurance plan to one lucky mom out there. What?! Yep it is true. We feel that we have been blessed, and we want to pay it forward. All you have to do is tell us why in detail that you need this, in the comments and we will select a winner. Winner will be asked to provide a short video telling what this coverage means to them and how it helped them.

Vision is so important to stay up on, especially for moms who are driving around little ones and watching out for children’s well being. Also, maybe equally important, your kids are not always aware or able to tell you that they don’t see clearly.

children with vision problems VSP VSP insuranceStatistically, 1 in 4 kids have undetected vision care needs and 1 in 5 struggle to read because of vision. I read that by age 5, kids are supposed to have 3 eye exams and more than 75% do not get that care. Can you imagine? There are over ten million students in America. That is a lot of kids that may not be getting the education that they deserve because of vision. I had never though of that. I guess its time to get my kids in to make sure that any correctable vision problems that can be fixed, will be, before the repercussions are permanent. If this touches you like it did me, give your kids or grandkids the gift of sight by always having vision care.

  1. Everyone in my family has glasses except my youngest daughter. She is in first grade and before Christmas had not been very interested in reading. Now she reads all the time and I have noticed that she holds the book closer to her face than she used to. I think it’s time to get her eyes checked to see if she is joining the rest of the family with glasses. We had VSP last year and they were a wonderful company. There was a long list of providers that accept them and their rates were reasonable if you went to an optometrist that wasn’t in their network.

  2. I lost my glasses during our move last year. I don’t need them for driving so I haven’t been able to get in to get new ones. That’s the mom life, I guess.

  3. I really need vision care. My insurance got cancelled and I am currently not covered. I do require glasses and contacts though. I have to pay out of pocket now when I make appointments so I would love to be covered!
