August Celebrations

National Eye Exam Month


Visit your local optometrist to celebrate National Eye Exam Month! Eye care is an important part of life! Make the necessary visits to the optometrist to get an eye exam if you haven’t done so for a while. Your quality of life can improve by seeing better! Some people believe that glasses are dorky or make them look uncool, but you can always find some good looking spectacles or opt for contacts!

National Family Fun Month
