Optos firmly believes in detecting and treating vision problems and eye diseases as early as possible. That’s why we develop retinal imaging and diagnostic tools that are comfortable for patients of all ages. It’s also why we feel so strongly about calling attention to events that raise awareness for protecting the vision of our youth like Prevent Blindness America’s Most Beautiful Eyes Contest.
The Most Beautiful Eyes Contest was designed to present “a unique opportunity to remind parents about the importance of making sure our children’s eyes are healthy,” as Prevent Blindness America’s president and CEO Hugh R. Parry says. With the support of sponsors and judges, the contest is working to guide children down the path toward a lifetime of healthy vision.
The contest is currently accepting submission and will continue to do so through July 31, 2013. Parents of children ages zero to 17 are invited to submit a photo of their child’s beautiful eyes on the Real Kids Shades sunglasses and the children’s book “Jacob’s Eye Patch” and will advance to the next round of competition.
A panel of celebrity judges will then select from the state winners the 2013 grand prize winner of the Most Beautiful Eyes Contest. The winner, along with two family members, will be flown to Chicago to attend the Prevent Blindness America Annual Awards Banquet, where they will accept the scholarship.
Beautiful eyes start with healthy eyes, which is why it’s important to start request a consultation with one of our representatives.
