Men's Health Month: Eye Health

Do you know that almost 30% of men will wait "as long as possible" before visiting a doctor!!  With June being Men's Health Month, this is a reminder for those men that regular check-ups with health care providers are essential in catching problems before they become serious conditions - and that includes EYE HEALTH!!

Drs. Hansen, Pietig and Young would love to help you be the one to reduce that percentage with a comprehensive eye health exam.  This preventative, individual and comprehensive exam will check for risk factors, including a history of eye disease like glaucoma or macular degeneration, diabetes or high blood pressure, a job that may be hazardous to the eyes, or previous eye injuries or surgery that could require a more frequent eye exam schedule.

Vision impairment becomes a greater concern as we age - notice having to stretch those arms out longer to read?!  At Ankeny Family Vision Center, we strive to see that you receive that personal vision care that you deserve.  Call us and scheule that needed appointment.  Don't wait "as long as possible"!!  We don't bite!!
