Sight is a precious gift
Think about all the things you’re doing today. How many of those things are dependent on your eyesight?
We often take our ability to see for granted. Over 100 million light-receptive cells in our eyes work together to give us images of the world around us. Our eyesight is second only to our brain function in terms of complexity. Although modern science has found ways to transplant hearts, kidneys, and skin, we can’t yet transplant eyes. The optic nerve is just too sensitive and complex to reconstruct.
There is a common misconception that if a person sees well, their eyes must be healthy. In fact, many serious, sight-threatening eye diseases, such as glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and retinal detachment may actually have no early warning symptoms. Fortunately, optometrists have the skills to detect many of these eye conditions in their early stages. Protect your eye health with regular eye exams.
We appreciate that you allow us to be your lifelong partner in doing that. We are grateful for the honor and opportunity to serve you, your family, and you neighbors and friends.
Imagine if you could help a child read, an adult succeed in his job, a senior maintain her independence.
In just about any dresser drawer, one can find a pair of eyeglasses that are no longer being used. That same pair of eyeglasses can change another person’s life. If you have used eyeglasses you no longer need, you can donate them now.
For the month of December when you donate a pair of old glasses to the Lions Club through our office, we will give you a $25 voucher towards the purchase of a new pair*.
(Lions accept prescription and reading glasses, sunglasses and plastic and metal frames. Children’s glasses are especially needed)
As you go about your life today, think about how things would be different without your vision. Would you be able to do the same things? How does vision enrich your life? Make sure that you cherish your eyesight. Come in for regular eye exams and keep your prescription updated,
Thank you for trusting us to take care of your vision.
