With the first day of school in Barrington now just days away, it’s time to start preparing your kids to get back to the books. If you’re like us, your to-do list includes new school clothes, shoes, supplies and those last minute eye exams and physicals. Luckily, we now have the kids’ frames department to explore at the new Lumen Optical where they make eye exams quick, easy and affordable!

We’re having a little fun with Lumen this year by hosting a Cool for School Eyewear Contest. For a chance to win Lumen Optical prizes, all you have to do is share a photo of your favorite glasses-wearer sporting their summer shades or favorite back-to-school eyewear styles.

I recently brought my girls to Lumen Optical, which is a convenient, one-stop-shop for your kids’ annual eye exams. The newly opened boutique offers stylish frames, contact lenses and their exam rooms are equipped with state-of-the-art technology in a beautiful, kid-friendly environment.

One of things we love most about Lumen is their caring staff. My 6-year-old, Alexa had a blast browsing for frames after her visit with Lumen’s resident optometrist, Dr. Rabia Awan, O.D. “I liked trying on the frames in all the colors and playing in the kid area. Dr. Awan was so nice and we had fun.”

Also a mother to young children, Dr. Awan has practiced in the Chicago area for the last six years and specializes in ocular disease treatment, contact lens fittings and pre and post-op for cataract surgery.

Dr. Awan says the Lumen experience was designed with the customer in mind—offering a comfortable environment, quality care and an affordable price. “Lumen Optical provides a seamless approach to everything from vision prescriptions to frame styles and offers an exceptional, thoughtful experience for our guests.”
