De Rigo Gets Gap Glasses and More of What You Need to Know for June

Vaccines For Kids a Go, Say Parents

As the U.S. continues the COVID-19 vaccine rollout, parents are paying close attention to vaccine efficacy and side effects. Invisibly’s Realtime Research tool polled 1,258 people to find out if parents plan to vaccinate their kids, and if so, when. They learned that 53% of parents will consider vaccinating their kids at some point; 26% said immediately, 41% said they will wait and 33% don’t plan to at all. Young parents aged 18-24 are the most willing to get their kids vaccinated; while the older the parents are the less likely they are to vaccinate their kids. Parents with kids aged 14-17 are most likely to have their children vaccinated.

Virtual Learning Impacts Kids’ Vision

The Vision Impact Institute hosted a panel of experts in children’s vision and health to discuss the implications of digital learning on children’s vision. The panel included Donna Mazyck, Executive Director, National Association of School Nurses; Becky Palm, President and Executive Director, Essilor Vision Foundation; Joseph Ricci, Executive Director, Pennsylvania Optometric Association; and Dr. Charles Shidlofsky, Clinical Director, Neuro-Vision Associates of North Texas. Topics highlighted ways the pandemic has affected children’s vision due to additional screen time; strained methods of delivering care as school screenings and comprehensive exams were affected; and the need for evidence-based advocacy.
