November is a time when we feel so much gratitude in our hearts as we honor our brave Veterans, appreciate the wonderful community that we are part of and remember Dr. Sidney Lavine. At Bordentown Family Eye Care, we are so incredibly grateful to the brave men and women who have sacrificed so much for their country so that we may enjoy such freedom. We are so very thankful for those who have paved the way before us. We feel unbelievably blessed to have such supportive and loyal patients who make what we do so enjoyable and rewarding.
We are gearing up for WORLD SIGHT DAY on Thursday, October, 10th. We are joining in with Optometry Giving Sight to be a part of their challenge to help end avoidable blindness and vision impairment worldwide.
Unfortunately, there are more than 1.2 billion people around the world who are blind or vision impaired because they don’t have access to an eye exam and a pair of glasses. Our goal is to help this great effort to ensure less children are limited by poor vision. We will be donating the proceeds from the exams that day to this worthy cause. In addition, we will be donating $5.00 for every frame sold during the month of October. #GivingFeelsBetterThanReceiving
As sad as we are to say goodbye to the laid-back days of summer, we look forward to what awaits. September is Healthy Aging Month, and so we recognize the importance of a healthy lifestyle to reduce the degenerative process. With regards to the eye, our best defense in preventing degenerative changes is a healthy diet, including plentiful fruits, vegetables, and nuts. Leafy greens, in particular, are considered the super-food for the eye, as studies have shown their role in the prevention of Macular Degeneration and Cataracts. If you are unsure of how you’re doing in this process, you can schedule a comprehensive eye exam and we’ll let you know!
