Save Your Vision Month

March has been designated as “National Save Your Vision Month”. The American Optometric Association aims to raise awareness concerning the need for comprehensive annual eye exams. More people are using electronic devices for both work and pleasure than ever before. Be aware of developing dry eyes, blurred vision, or eye strain from using electronics all the time; some good tips for good eye health include keeping the screen 20 inches from your eyes, taking a break from the screen, and eating leafy green vegetables. Regular eye exams can detect problems before they become serious; schedule an appointment today at John Bell Health Center or Pediatric & Adolescent Health Center, located at 1207 Chestnut St., 3rd and 5th Floors, respectively, to get a head start on your road to health vision.
