The mission of the Newfoundland and Labrador Association of Optometrists is to assist members in providing quality eye care services to their patients and to meet the stated objectives of the association.
May is Vision Health Month. When was the last time you had an eye examination?
Vision Health Month is a time to raise awareness about eye health and the steps we can take to prevent vision loss. A regular eye exam by a doctor of optometry is the best way to stay on top of your eye health.
Did you know that 1 in 7 Canadians will develop a serious eye disease in their lifetime? Yet 75% of vision loss can be prevented or treated with proper care. A comprehensive eye exam can also detect potentially life threatening conditions, like brain tumours, high blood pressure and diabetes.
Dr Mark Smith, President, NLAO and Danny Barrett, CNIB Vision Advocate proclaim May as Vision Month with Minister Dr John Haggie and MHA Carol Ann Haley.
