August is Family Eye Care Month. Many eye diseases and disorders can be addressed if they are caught early. The number one mistake people make when it comes to their eye health is only seeing a doctor once a problem develops.
But did you know your optometrist may be able to detect other problems as well? It is possible to detect some problems like diabetes, high blood pressure or even tumors. Take some time this month to schedule an appointment with your health care provider or eye doctor. It is the perfect time to schedule routine eye exams for you and your family.
