Jonas Paul Eyewear

Over the past year, Isla's vision has changed some. She continues to use her white cane about 50 percent of the time and wears her glasses now about 80 percent of the time. The past few updates I have given on her vision have been little to no change but at her last eye exam back in December her doctor decided to change her prescription to increase the magnification a little. That is when we decided to give our friends over at Jonas Paul Eyewear a try. I just knew in my heart that changing up Isla's glasses to a pair from JPE was going to be a game changer for us.  When I told her it was time to pick a new pair of glasses, she got really excited about the whole process and the options she had to choose from.  She loved that she could choose different styles and colors. She ended up choosing the Paige Blush in the soft matte pink. They fit her face and complexion perfectly.

I have been "friends" with Laura via social media since finding out about Isla's diagnosis.  She was one of the VERY first people I had reached out to and started following on my social media platforms. It was stories like Jonas' that made me feel like Isla was not alone and that other families were going through similar situations like ours. You can read about when we first learned about Isla's eyes here.

Why We Chose and Love Jonas Paul Eyewear?
We love the story behind Jonas Paul Eyewear for many reasons.  One of them would be because of the support it shows to Laura, Ben and their sweet Jonas. The other reason would be because of the mission and heart behind it all.  For every pair of Jonas Paul Eyewear kids glasses purchased, they make a donation to the various partners to provide eye tests, corrective children's glasses, cataract surgeries, mectizan treatments to prevent blindness, and Vitamin A supplements to children and families in need.  These donations provide support for visually impaired children all over the world.

 Isla has gained a lot confidence since wearing her Jonas Paul Eyewear.  We noticed the biggest difference when she started preschool back in the Fall.  She was able to complete class activities because the glasses kept her from wanting to press her eye and hold her eye shut. They also help decrease her nystagmus which allows her eyes to rest at ease more as well as give her the confidence to do more while using her white cane.  Last week, JPE launched a few new frames and colors which Isla has already chosen from so that she can have an extra pair to switch out here and there. She's pretty excited about them and we can't wait to share with you what she chose.

If you're unsure about what frames to get your little one, they have a really neat home try on program option that makes it super easy and convenient for you and your little one right in the comfort of your own home.  Pretty neat, right?

I hope you found this post helpful and if you know anyone that has little ones in search of eye glasses, we highly recommend Jonas Paul Eyewear.  It has truly been a wonderful experience for us and our Isla Rose.  If you have any questions, feel free to reach out anytime.
