(WDEF) The Chattanooga Kids on the Block get a makeover.
     And it's thanks to Eyear Optical.
     Some of the Kids on the Block puppets have been sporting old and out of style glasses.
     A few even had broken glasses.
     So the folks at Eyear Optical decided to fix that by offering free "eye exams" and glasses fittings for the kids.
     Kelly Lowry of Chattanooga Kids on the Block said, "It's very important for the puppets to relate to the kids.  We always tell the children at the beginning of each program our kids are just like you.  They're just like me.  They have differences and that's what makes the world go round, is we all have differences and we're all unique in our own way."
     Kids on the Block officials say it's the perfect way to get the puppets ready for summer and the next schoolyear.
