Here we are closer to the end of March than the beginning and I have not talked about Save-Your-Vision month yet. March is Save-Your-Vision month. The American Optometric Association (AOA) selects a theme for Save-Your-Vision month and this year the theme is the importance of annual eye examinations. Having an eye exam every year can, ..well…, save your vision.

There are a number of eye conditions that do not have symptoms, like glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and brain lesions. In most cases, early detection and the proper treatment can prevent blindness, disability or death. Some conditions do have symptoms, but they are still ignored. Blurred vision, eye strain and red eyes can be treated to make your life much more comfortable.

If you have not had a comprhensive eye examination in the last 12 months, make that call (707)762-8643, it can save your vision.
