The Eyes Have it on Memorial Day

Do you know when the first Memorial Day was observed? Guess...

It was actually first observed on May 30th, 1868. We often we take for granted the service and lives that were lost for our freedom. Thankfully, ever since the Civil War, we have had this special day to remember those who have served to protect our nation.

Did you know that about 13% of injuries during the Cold war involved the eye? We may take our good vision for granted, but please stop and also remember those who now are blind or severely visually impaired due to their military service.

If you are able to read this blog, please remember what a true blessing it is to have good vision. Thank you to all our military soldiers who selflessly serve, and especially those who lose vision or another aspect of their life due to their service. We appreciate you!!!
