Screen Time Safety with EyePromise: Vision Support for Teens
This post was done in partnership with EyePromise Screen Shield Teen. All opinions are 100% my own.
My daughter was born with a pretty serious eye condition which thankfully we caught early and have been able to manage through the years. I think that initial shock of learning that she had vision issues really helped me to understand and appreciate the value of good vision and how important eye care really is.
Today, she’s a thriving teenager and we haven’t looked back (pun intended!) at those early years and the scares that we had with her vision problems. Through regular checkups and the proper eyewear and care, she’s just a normal teen enjoying all of the things that go along with that.
Through all of this, I’ve definitely grown to appreciate the benefits and blessings of good vision and it’s something that I am pretty diligent about maintaining with both my kids. Let’s be honest! Good vision is priceless and I want to do whatever I can to help them maintain healthy eyesight.
The one thing that I have worried about with my kids is screen time and how that effects their eye health. Even for those of us that try to keep screen time to a minimum, it’s something that we can’t avoid. My daughter is in front of screen in 4 out of 7 of her classes and then on top of that she has at least 3 hours of screen time homework and reading to do each week, 4 hours if she does the extra credit.
That’s where EyePromise® Screen Shield™ Teen comes in. This once daily vitamin protects against screen time side effects like eye strain, headaches and tired eyes. As they get older, the time that they spend looking at screens is more likely to go up and I’m all about finding ways to insure that I can protect their young eyes as much as possible.
About EyePromise Screen Shield Teen: This once-a-day, fruit punch flavored chewable eye vitamin is designed to help support your child’s vision from the inside out. With 5 mg of dietary zeaxanthin and 2.5 mg of lutein, this leading eye health vitamin is guaranteed to help increase the eyes’ protective barrier that defends our source of vision while also protecting it from the effects of increased screen time.
The best part is that these chewable vitamins are affordable and one more thing that I can do to help protect my kids from the crazy amount of screen time that they are getting just at school alone. I love that it’s as easy as a once a day vitamin that they don’t mind taking it because it has a yummy fruit punch flavor (I tasted it myself!) and it’s such a simple way to boost that extra protection that their young eyes need!
At the end of the day, I want to know that I’ve done all I can to make sure that my kids are happy and healthy, right down to the way that they see the world around them and I think that starts with good eye care and maintenance.
Because as she is growing and learning and finding her way in this world, the way she sees things (both literally and figuratively) means so much to me.
