This Mother's Day, Consider a Sight-Saving Gift
Help the ladies in your life get a dilated eye exam.
Mother's Day is a great time to remind women in your community about the importance of maintaining healthy vision. Encourage members of the community you serve to skip the perfume or candy this year and show they care in a different way. Ask them to schedule a dilated eye exam for a special lady and drive her to the appointment. It's a gift that will help her see her best, now and in the years ahead.
