    Eye Health and Disease Detection

    You may be surprised to learn that losing your eyesight is NOT a normal part of aging. What’s more, the National Eye Institute reports that most cases of blindness can be prevented through early detection and treatment of eye diseases. Be sure to visit your optometrist or ophthalmologist for an eye exam once per year, or immediately if you have any degree of sudden vision loss, eye pain, or irritation.

    Eye Exams and Surgery
