Family First

It is important to put family first. Everyone in the family, including children, should be seen by an optometrist. Yesterday I asked my wife why she took the kids to the dentist if their baby teeth were going to fall out anyway. She answered well indicating the problems that can occur in children's teeth. Our eyes need the same care that we give our teeth. Regular check ups to check for retinopathy, glaucoma, strabismus and refractive error will prevent sight threatening and uncomfortable conditions in the eye. Scheduling regular eye exams is one more way we can put family first.
