Eyelet Junior for our active lifestyles

[ Sponsored ]

Eyelet Junior series of eye wear fits our kids’ sporty lifestyle. Be it basketball, hiking or cycling, our eye wear stays on the kids’ faces (without slipping).

More importantly, we are happy that the stylish and functional eye wear helps to control kids’ myopia from worsening.

Sometimes,  I am a bit disappointed at myself for being negligent at protecting my kids eyes. We only have a pair of eyes and we sometimes take our eyesight and vision for granted.

I suspect we (society, peers) might have subconsciously influenced kids that we can always rely on lasik to solve all our problems.

We list some of the common tips to protect our eyes below.

  • Ensuring book is 30cm away
  • Rest our eyes from the screen every 30 minutes
  • Too much smart phone games
  • The high percentage of myopic rate in our population might let the kids believe that myopia is normal
  • It does not help that both parents are respected and kids might have a “resigned” attitude thinking genetics will win the day. I keep finding excuses, when we as parents should try harder to delay myopia progression.

 

Nanyang Optical’s Project Junior campaign wish to impress upon kids and parents to take better care of our eyes.

Nanyang Optical wants to raise our awareness about myopia prevention (and management).

Boon Kang testing his new Eyelet Junior eye wear. We love the colourful and bright eye wear, which suits their active lifestyles and style.

We have been using Eyelet Junior eye wear for a few years now, and we are confident of their durability and strength.

Poster below list some of the attributes of Eyelet Junior. You may read about our previous Eyelet Junior review here.

 

We understand the new version of Eyelet Junior is even more durable and lasting. Our boy decided to go back to his black and green colour combination.

During Boon Kang’s eye examination, our optician would remind us on how to take care of our eyes.

I noticed eye checks have gone digital too, we no longer have to look at the wall and read out the characters. Everything is flashed from a projector onto a screen.

3D check was new for me. We learnt that lazy eye will impair our ability to  differentiate depth, thus we will not be able to appreciate 3D movies’ special effects.

It is never too late to take care of our eyes. I must try harder to help kids take ownership of their own eye health.

Walk for Our Children 2017 at Chinese Garden

[ Media Invite ]

Last Sunday was Singapore Children‘s Society’s (SCS) “Walk for Our Children” event. This is an annual event and proceeds will go to charity.

The annual walk was part of a celebration for SCS’ 65th anniversary too. The walkathon at Chinese Garden itself is free, but participants are encouraged to donate or buy vouchers.

Renovation is still ongoing at Chinese Garden. Is this part of Jurong Lake rejuvenation?

Nevertheless, families and pets (so many dogs) gathered early for a healthy and meaningful event.

 

Living in Sengkang, Chinese Garden is not exactly near, but this park (and Japanese Park) is definitely scenic.

We can see the lake and pagodas from many corners.

Did you know the main Pagoda is one of the heritage site? Do climb up to 7 storeys to enjoy an unspoiled 360 degree view of Jurong “hinterland” 🙂

 

Warm weather but 40 minutes went past in a blink.

Games, food stalls, and bouncing castles await us at the end point.

We can buy vouchers and redeem them at the stalls for games or food.

This cute dog is not part of the ‘official” stall exhibits and caricature was one of the most popular stalls.

 

Thank you for inviting us to the morning walk, Singapore Children Society. Besides contributing to charity, it was a good opportunity for many families to bond and exercise too.

 

 

Celebrating Every Step Together 🙂
