What other parents say
We’ve been testing our app and glasses with families just like yours, here’s what they have to say:
As parents, we know how important it is to provide our kids the right foods to fuel their brains and bodies. Research has shown that there are certain foods that are proven to be beneficial for your kid’s eyes, whether they have vision impairments or not. Here is a list of some of the top foods for eye health and delicious & easy recipes for each one!
Have you ever looked at you or your child’s eyeglass prescription and felt as though you were looking at another language? Well, you’re not alone. It’s actually one of the most frequently asked glasses-related questions on the internet. That being said, we have created this quick (and much easier to read) guide for figuring out what your prescription is really saying.
It’s a universal parenting truth: when your kid comes home sick, the rest of the household is about to get sick. All parents cringe at the email with the subject header, “your child has been exposed to…”. So, when the apple of your eye arrives with those sad, swollen peepers and is obviously uncomfortable, it’s definitely time for damage control.
Hi, I’m Heidi Hertel. For those of you who don’t know me, or my story, I founded Fitz Frames...and haven’t had a day off since! Balancing life as a mom of three, wife, and founder of a company, I frequently get asked how I make it work. As with most working moms, sometimes I really don’t know how I get through each day. Having kids certainly made my life hectic and ever-changing, but adding Fitz (my fourth child) to the mix definitely upped the ante. That being said, I wanted to take this opportunity to let you in on a snapshot of what my typical day looks like.
They’ve disappeared … again. Yes, your kid has misplaced their glasses for what seems like the hundredth time this month. Wait! Don’t pull out your hair in despair! Lots of kids go through phases of constantly losing glasses and your child is no different. Now – how do you help them find those lost glasses? And how do you help them keep better track of them going forward?
Our founder, Heidi, tells about the experience of finding out that her daughter needed glasses and surviving the experience.
Packing for three kids (and myself) before a vacation is a major effort rife with chances of missing something very necessary for my kids to enjoy our time away from home. It’s really a game of odds and a guarantee of forgetting something for (at least) one.
The Fitz App is finally live! Go order some glasses!
Meet Dr. Stacy Pineles, Associate Professor of Pediatric Ophthalmology at UCLA’s Jules Stein Center. We sat down with Dr. Pineles to discuss recommendations for proactive eye health.
Sunscreen is only half of the outdoors equation. It takes both sunscreen and sunglasses to stay protected. How do we ensure that we are buying the right type of sunglasses to ensure maximum protection for our kids’ eyes?
It’s so fun and easy!
“After visiting several stores and spending over $300 on my 5 year-old’s glasses, they still didn’t fit her face properly. With Fitz, we got glasses that were the perfect fit and also saved us a lot of time and money.”
“Our weekends are full throttle. Between football, soccer, and tennis, broken hinges were an almost weekly occurrence. But with Fitz, we simply pop them back in and play on.”
Just fits so much better.
“My son was so excited to use the Fitz app to choose his glasses. He had the chance to select the shape, color, and put his name inside - making him feel in charge of the process and eager to get them.”
