First Things First

Why not start with an eye health exam?  From increased screen-time to extended indoor activities, our eyes have been putting in some serious overtime!  A comprehensive eye exam can help detect and manage certain health conditions and ensure that your vision is the sharpest it can be.  According to the American Optometric Association, a comprehensive eye health exam can detect high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, glaucoma, macular degeneration, Graves’ disease, autoimmune disorders, cancer and tumors. Preventative check-ups and visits can literally save your life, so don’t put these off any longer.
