A yearly eye exam can show many different health problems.

I learned that annual eye exams are very important for the opthamologist to check for diabetes, high blood pressure and other health conditions that can be detected through changes in a person’s vision. I learned that blood vessels in the eyes can indicate potential health problems.
The school I’d like you to donate to is Mission High School in San Francisco, CA. Thanks!

It is good to get your eyes checked regularly to help detect signs of early medical problems such as high blood pressure.

I learned that you can sign up as an individual even if your employer does not offer VSP.

Starting early with regular eye exams for your children is an important but of a health check up, as the eyes can tell us a lot about our health too. Getting kids into glasses early if they need them can actually sometimes correct their vision when worn properly and not for extended periods of tis.

Adults always think old people only need eye exams ,it’s good to learn that all ages,especially kids should get their eyes examined every six months!

I didn’t know they could see things like high blood pressure or high cholesrtol with an eye exam. And that vision health care is so affordable. Gallego Basic Elementary Tucson, AZ

An eye exam can detect signs of diabetes. That runs in my husband’s family. My husband and son have poor vision and both wear glasses. Thank you. Please choose to give the monetary donation to Loudonville Christian School in Loudonville, NY.

I learned that an annual eye exam is critical to my overall health, including looking for high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes. Everyone must have an annual eye exam for their overall health.
