Meet Eyeleen – The Vision Van

Eye health is something that is commonly overlooked in children. After all, we associate youth with health. A young body means young eyes, ears, and organs. What could go wrong? The reality is that children can and do suffer from the same eye health issues that adults do. Some are born with these conditions and […]

How Is Your State Screening for Vision Problems?
