Lumen Optical Evanston Eye Exam Giveaway

As a busy mom of two small boys, my needs typically fall on the back burner. I am usually 6-12 months overdue for doctor’s appointments because I am not only busy carting my kids to classes, activities, and THEIR appointments, but also because I struggle to find childcare so I can actually take care of MY business. Thankfully businesses are starting to realize that they should be catering to busy families like mine, and let me tell you, Lumen Optical Evanston is leading the way through their innovative eye exams.

This is a sponsored post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

What is Lumen Optical? It is an upscale and stylish boutique that has reimagined the eye exam experience. As someone who has bad eyesight and has seen too many different eye doctors, I must admit that I was absolutely floored by the non invasive yet in-depth exam. Lumen Optical’s state of the art tools avoided the cumbersome eye dilation process and made my exam more efficient.

My exam even included a 3D scan of my eyes and the doctor was able to (literally) point out my eye growth and development.  It was such a positive and educational experience that it had me asking all sorts of questions about my eye health and the future of my eyes that I never even considered.  This in-depth conversation left me feeling prepared for whatever can or will happen to my eyes in the future based on my medical history, something that never happened when I visited other eye care providers.

Since I had mentioned to the doctor that I was interested in getting eyeglasses based on my new prescription, the Lumen Optical team was ready and waiting for me at the Frames Bar with tons of different styles of frames (at multiple price points) that complimented my face. All I had to do was try the frames on, which was fun yet difficult because so many frames looked great on me!  Even better? My brand new glasses were ready the next day. Seriously. And I visited over the holidays. Talk about customer service at its finest!

Oh, and did I mention that my kids were able to entertain themselves during my Lumen Optical Experience? I was thrilled to see that Lumen Optical Evanston has a family friendly area set up with books, toys, and ample seating so that I was able to relax and focus on myself for a change. I will even be hosting a family friendly  story time at the Evanston Lumen Optical location, so be sure to stay tuned to my social media channels for updates!

If you have kids who need eye exams, you need to know that Lumen Optical caters to them as well. The staff is great with explaining what all the machines do and making eye health something that is interesting and exciting instead of just a boring old doctors visit. For example, the exam focuses on shapes instead of letters which can be confusing to young kids and also integrates fun and silly eyeglasses to get kids totally relaxed and at ease. Other than my pediatrician’s office, this is the most family friendly medical offices we have ever been to.

    Eye exams are so important to have yearly. I’m due to have one very soon. Being a blogger, our eyesight is very important.
