Fan Favorites: Family Eye Doctors

Eye Doctors for Kindergarten Exams

Tick, tock, tick, tock…

The clock is ticking! The back to school countdown is on, and for most students the first day of school is less than 30 days away. Do you have all your ducks in a row? Don’t forget an eye exam (like I almost did) if you are sending a little one off to kindergarten. In January 2008, the State of Illinois enacted a law requiring all incoming kindergarten students to undergo an eye exam and vision screening. We recently visited Grayslake Eyecare Associates for our kindergarten screening, and we were so happy with their services that I have been recommending them to everyone.

We asked our fans who they visit for their families’ eye care, and I have put together this handily little fan favorites list for you. If you’re still working on your back-to-school checklist, I hope it will save you some time, and allow you to enjoy these last, fleeting moments of summer.
