Getting ready for the holidays can mean many things - shopping, planning, family, expenses, traveling, etc. But, sharing meaningful moments this year is what really matters, and making a visit to your local optometrist can be one of them, too!

#1 - Impression counts

Not everyone boasts a new look for the holidays, but scheduling yourself an eye exam might be that one addition that can make quite the impression. If you consider the number of social events, holiday meals, and of course New Year's Eve, ensuring that you have healthy eyesight (and perhaps a new pair of daily contacts) will make your holiday season that more enjoyable! An annual supply of contact lenses now will let you start the holiday season and the new year well prepared. Stay confident this year with an updated prescription to make that impactful impression.

How many resolutions do we make every year and only a handful are accomplished? Instead of making that resolution to get back in shape, take a headstart leap at schedule an eye exam today! You'll be able to brag to everyone that you've already completed your first resolution before the New Year!

#3 - Eyesight is a Precious Gift

However, health and seeing clearly is valuable to everyone, so consider a gift certificate or sponsoring an eye exam. Not only do you show concern for their well being, but an eye exam provides a wealth of information about their overall health & well being. Drop the coffee cards and give a gift that lasts.

For those of you who have a flex spending account, needless to say, the clock's ticking. Scheduling an appointment as soon as possible is vital to make use of your benefits. You may be surprised how much you'll be able to invest in the health of your eyes!

By investing some time this holiday season in your eye health and scheduling an annual eye exam, you'll be able to share with others that you've given yourself an amazing gift. The gift of healthy eyesight, peace of mind, and appreciation.
