Blindness Awareness Month

This month marks October's Blindness Awareness Month. This month we will strive to educate our community about dangers that can cause blindness and to remind everyone that protecting our vision and helping those who suffer from low or no vision is something we can do. Schedule your appointment with us today and learn more about your vision health and how to improve it. In order to help prevent blindness in your lifetime, follow these tips to maintain the health of your vision. 

  1. Always wash your hands

    We touch our face and eyes each day every day, especially if we wear contacts; washing your hands prevents the spread of bacteria and germs which can lead to pink-eye, colds, and other ailments.

  2. ​Watch your blood sugar levels

    ​Diabetics are more likely to develop visual impairment than non-diabetics. Come and schedule a diabetic eye exam with us today and learn more about our diabetic eye exam.

  3. ​Monitor screen time

    Take frequent breaks when using screens such as T.V. and computers to lessen the strain on the eyes from blue light. 

  4. Get checked out now!

    Make an appointment with our doctor today! Many vision problems can arise without anyone realizing it until it is too late. Let us catch the problem before it is too late. 

    Visit our website or come in for a consultation to learn more. You can book an appointment on our website. Thank you for choosing Eyecare Leaders and we wish you good health and the well-being of you, and your family.
