Finding Low-Cost Eye Exams

August is National Eye exam month. Roughly 11 million Americans need some form of vision correction. Even if you don’t need glasses, regular eye exams can help catch eye diseases early. Many eye diseases can result in blindness or vision impairment down the road. Older adults should have an eye exam once every two years. When was the last time you had an eye exam?
