October is National Eye Health Month: BC Doctor of Optometry Prize Giveaway

Comments 199 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Growing up I always had good eyesight although in the last decade or so, my vision has come down a notch when it comes to reading highway signs and things that are further away from my face than a computer screen. It’s times like these that you realize that eye health is a very important part of overall health.


The theme of National Eye Health Month this year is children’s vision:

  • More than 80 per cent of a child’s learning is based on vision.
  • Identifying eye health issues at this age is critical, as they can begin to affect children’s academic and social development.
  • One in five children has a vision disorder. Not knowing any differently, many of these children accept poor vision and other eye problems as normal.
  • Not all children’s eye conditions have obvious symptoms. The best way to protect your child’s eye health is with regular eye exams.
  • BC Doctors of Optometry recommend children have their first eye exam at six months of age, again at age three, again before entering school and annually thereafter.

Ask An OptometristShould you have any questions before your next visit to the optometrist, there’s a new online resource that you can turn to. The BC Doctors of Optometry have setup a Facebook page to assist the general public with basic eye health questions.

It was launched in 2011 and this August they began a sweepstakes campaign, doing giveaways until the end of the year through the online forum on Facebook. The page is managed by 22 on-call BC Doctors of Optometry who provide answers typically within 24 hours of posting.

While the online tool is useful, it doesn’t replace an actual visit to the optometrist. Find a doctor online, anywhere in BC, for comprehensive eye exams, vision correction, eyewear (fittings and dispensing) and disease detection.

I have partnered with BC Doctors of Optometry to offer up a $350 prize voucher, good for products and services that they offer including eye exams, glasses, and contact lenses.

Here’s how you can enter to win:

  • Leave a comment here (1 entry)
  • Post the following on Twitter (1 entry)
RT to enter to win $350 for products & services offered by a BC Doctor of Optometry from @Miss604 http://ow.ly/eltzd

I will draw one winner at random from all entries at 12:00pm Thursday, October 18, 2012.
The prize can only be claimed with a BC Doctor of Optometry who is a member of the BC Association of Optometrists. The winner must be a legal resident of BC. The winner must be the age of majority in BC (19).

Update The winner is Sandra!

    Good timing for me as I am getting difficulty reading signs and bus numbers. Hope I can win.

  14. JenTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 3:26pm PDT

    I have never had a thorough eye exam, so this prize would definitely be appreciated!!!

  15. JeremyTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 3:26pm PDT

    I am due for an eye exam and in need of new glasses, so this would be wonderful 🙂

  16. BonnieTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 3:30pm PDT

    I need to get my eyes checked. I haven’t had an eye exam for a few years.

  17. TYTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 3:32pm PDT

    i wouldn’t mind a new frame 🙂

  18. ShelleyTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 3:34pm PDT

    This is the most perfect contest for me to enter. I am in desperate need for an eye exam and a new pair of glasses.

  19. Aileen RTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 3:45pm PDT

    This is great! I am due for my eye exam and my daughter is due for her first here shortly.

  20. leahTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 3:48pm PDT

    i need new contacts soon :p

  21. ConradTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 3:53pm PDT

    I spend far too long in front of a computer. Should get an eye test.

  22. AdaTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 3:55pm PDT

    i need an eye exam, but have no coverage

  23. LindaTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 4:04pm PDT

    I could certainly use this. I’ve had bad eyes since childhood.

  24. jada catlingTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 4:08pm PDT

    Oh my this would be awesome to win.not only is eye coverage not covered by my husbands msp but i have 2 daughters and i myself wear a very strong glasses prescription.

  25. DonTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 4:27pm PDT

    I have been wearing eyewear for only the past 5 years. I used to have perfect vision. My Optometrist tells me…I have the 40+ sight syndrome….I so miss not being able to read without glasses….Your vision is so important…get regular check ups and take care of your sight! 🙂

  26. eshizziTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 4:29pm PDT

    Eye Know!

  27. RoTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 5:20pm PDT

    It’s great to be bringing awareness to this. Thanks!

  28. LindsayTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 5:34pm PDT

    You only get one set of eyes – look after them!

  29. DenbiTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 5:43pm PDT

    Eye health is very important. This is a great prize.

  30. JanTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 5:55pm PDT

    would be wonderful to give to my mother

  31. LYNTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 5:59pm PDT

    October is a great month to conscious of our eyes.

  32. MicheleTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 6:19pm PDT

    This is a great idea. Though it is very important, eye care is unfortunately a major gap in our national health.

  33. KatieTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 6:34pm PDT

    Definitely an important cause

  34. LindaTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 6:37pm PDT

    Eye health is often overlooked. Thanks for offering such a great prize.

  35. AndrewTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 6:42pm PDT

    I’m due for an eye exam, thanks for the reminder!

  36. Don MTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 6:45pm PDT

  37. matthew mTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 7:01pm PDT

    Been thinking I should get my eyes checked again.

  38. JenniferTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 7:22pm PDT

    This will come in handy!

  39. Donna LTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 7:40pm PDT

    I’ve been wearing glasses and contacts since I was in grade 5. I could really use this as I don’t have insurance! Eyesight is so precious and not to be taken for granted. Thanks!

  40. shelaineTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 7:45pm PDT

    need glasses. pick me.

  41. BrendaTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 7:54pm PDT

  42. CliffTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 7:54pm PDT

    It’s been ages since I’ve had my eyes checked but I should probably do it more regularly

  43. lorTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 8:01pm PDT

    yea to new glasses!!! 😀

  44. DarwinTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 8:06pm PDT

  45. AmritaTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 8:06pm PDT

    This is fantastic!

  46. KatieTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 8:09pm PDT

    I actually really need to get glasses but I’m not covered under insurance right now so this would really come in handy for me!

  47. RaynaTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 8:13pm PDT

    I wore an eyepatch as a child for almost two years to correct a lazy eye. Ophthalmologists were part of my kindergarten life & managed to fix the problem. Fast forward twenty-five plus years and now I notice I hold my book closer to my face. I even said just last night ‘The font in this book could be larger’. I definitely need an eye exam and probably glasses.

  48. LorettaTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 8:15pm PDT

    I would appreciate new glasses and contacts. This would be a great prize to win!

  49. RahimTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 8:17pm PDT

    Stupid laziness in grade 2 has lead to a life time of glasses. If only I had worn my glasses when I had to, maybe my eyesight would not be so bad.

  50. ErikaTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 8:18pm PDT

    This would be awesome, mine were just stolen :S

  51. Karen CTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 8:22pm PDT

    Oh just in time! I need new contact lenses!

  52. KayTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 8:26pm PDT

    good timing!

  53. MarinaTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 8:28pm PDT

    I love having different frames for different looks.

  54. DoraTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 8:28pm PDT

    Good timing! I am overdue for an eye test.

  55. AnikaTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 8:35pm PDT

    My peepers could use a little care 🙂

  56. StephanieTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 8:45pm PDT

    Reading is becoming harder and harder for me. It’s a getting older thing.

  57. RubyTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 8:46pm PDT

    Just in time!

  58. allisonTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 8:50pm PDT

    I recently discovered (at a naturopath appointment) that I need an eye exam! Benefits don’t’s quite cover an eye exam + glasses so this would be so great!!!

  59. Karla JohnsonTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 8:52pm PDT

    An eye exam would be fantastic!

  60. JeremyTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 9:00pm PDT

  61. TracyTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 9:01pm PDT

    Cool giveaway!

  64. NoellaTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 9:11pm PDT

  65. brittany oravTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 9:11pm PDT

    Just moved to Vancouver – realized I couldn’t read street signs !! (Wasn’t important when I knew the area) – eyewear should be covered under our healthcare plan!

  66. TracyTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 9:18pm PDT

    It’s time for me to get my eyes tested, I just started to need readers to, well read.:)

  67. VaughnTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 9:20pm PDT

    Overdue for an eye exam – perfect prize!

  68. LindsayTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 9:21pm PDT

    I’ve always had 20/20 but now I’m noticing that I can’t see quite as goodwith signs. Hope it’s nothing to worry about.

  69. Siobhan S.Tuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 9:27pm PDT

    I’ve worn glasses since I was three years old, so I could definitely use this. My prescription is so strong that this would not be enough for one pair of glasses, but it sure would help! Thanks for the great contest!

  70. RebeccaTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 9:33pm PDT

    I think I’ve been wearing the same contacts for like 8 months. Time for a reorder.

  71. MargareteTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 9:47pm PDT

    That would be fantastic! 2 out of my 3 children need glasses so I could really use it.

  75. SabinahTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 9:56pm PDT

    I would love to win this…Everyone in my family has glasses!

  78. IrisTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 9:59pm PDT

    Wonderful! I am amazed by how much my eyesight can change in just 2 years. It is so subtle but then when I get new glasses I sure notice the difference!

  79. LaraTuesday, October 9th, 2012 — 10:08pm PDT

    A very thoughtful and practical giveaway.

    Prices for glasses are terribly high in North America.
    I don’t need all these branded frames. How could a piece of plastic cost 2-3-4 hundred dollars?
    I tried to find reasonably priced no-name frames but no luck 🙁

  129. SusanThursday, October 11th, 2012 — 11:14am PDT
