The National Eye Institute (NEI) has deemed May “Healthy Vision Month”. This year they are emphasizing getting your eyes checked by an eye care professional. Over 11 million Americans have one of the most common (and correctable) vision problems in the United States; refractive errors.

These are such problems such as nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), astigmatism and Presbyopia. These problems are easily corrected with the prescription of corrective eyewear such as eyeglasses or contact lenses.

Early detection and treatment of eye conditions and diseases are essential to maintaining good vision at every stage of life. The key to preventing eye injuries is to take a more proactive approach to sustaining healthy vision; so make an appointment to get your eyes checked today! Your eyesight is a terrible thing to lose. Make sure you can see your future!
