August is the perfect time to help your eyewear professional advertisers utilize their co-op funding. Since August is Children’s Eye Health and Safety Month, parents all over are making appointments right now to get their children’s eyes checked out before they head back to school. I don’t know about you, but ever since Covid came into our world, it seems like it takes a lot longer to get into any type of doctor. This is the time right now for Opticians, Optical Stores, Online Eyewear Companies, Ophthalmologists, and any other business in the vision industry to advertise what they carry and utilize their co-op funding while doing it!
