Think About Your Eyes Announces Contest Winners for #seebeyond2020

ALEXANDRIA, Va.—Think About Your Eyes, a national public awareness campaign about the importance of scheduling an annual eye exam with an optometrist, has announced the winners of the #seebeyond2020 contest. Think About Your Eyes launched the contest last October to capture and feature the stories of individuals whose lives were enhanced by visiting the eye doctor. Criteria in winner selection included how well the eye health story communicated a life-changing impact of an eye exam and how well it conveyed how eye health contributes to the quality of life. The contest’s grand prize winner is Patricia Burke of Summerville, S.C., who submitted her adopted daughter Gwendolyn’s story about her need for eyeglasses. A total of 10 additional winners were also selected to receive a cash prize.
