Healthy Vision
Good eye health and vision can sometimes be taken for granted. Think of what your life might be like without good vision; not something you want to think about is it? During the month of July we observe “Eye Injury Prevention Month”. Beyond the eye diseases we might not be able to prevent, there is much we can do to protect our eye health.
