Free Information from Optometrist

OptometristTherapeutic Optometrist Dr. Moes Nasser is offering a free educational discussion for teens, tweens, and their parents about eye health and eye care, just in time to ensure success as children go back to school.  One out of every four children ages 5-17 have a vision problem, so it's important for parents to know about eye health.  Dr. Nasser will be discussing everything from signs and symptoms of eye injury to making the transition from glasses to contact lenses to how to ensure proper eye care.   Free goodie bags with eye care tips and helpful information will be provided.
Monday, August 13, at 6:30 pm, in the Fairbanks Library meeting room.
