March is National Save Your Vision Month! We want to encourage people to remember to get yearly comprehensive eye exams to keep your eyes healthy!
Some people might be wondering what optometry has to do with our clinic. Truth is, poor visual health can have an impact on a person’s overall health. Some poor vision issues can lead to balance and movement problems. To learn more about various types of vision problems that effect balance, you can check out the Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation Association’s website here. Low vision can lead to delays in areas such as visual perception and visual motor integration. Low vision can also cause problems for people trying to live an independent life. The AOTA has a nice handout for living with low vision, which you can read here.
