January is National Eye Care Month

When is the last time you had your eyes checked? You should schedule an eye exam at least once each year because it is an important part of your overall health. Early detection of eye issues before they progress and become more severe is always a good idea. Even if you have perfect vision now, having an annual eye examination may help save your vision for the future.
