Why I Love Eyes
As a kid I had minor eye issues and spent a lot of time with the eye doctor. That got me interested.
Later, I learned how important vision is to good health and success in life. Did you know that there is a direct correlation between good vision, and your children’s ability to reach their full academic potential? And that an eye exam provides a picture of your overall health?
To understand the importance of your vision, put one hand over an eye, then put both hands over your eyes. Need I say more?

♦ The eyes are a reflection of total well-being. Many systemic problems can be detected early through a complete eye exam. Remember, “The eyes are the window to the Soul.”
♦ The American Optometric Association recommends that children have their first eye examination by the age of one. Vision and normal development in children go hand in hand.
♦ Vision is your most important sense. Your ability to see affects everything about your life, from learning to playing sports to everyday activities. Annual eye exams are key to good vision.
What Makes Me Smile
♦ I’m an avid fisherman and golfer, so anytime I catch a fish or get a hole in one…you’ll catch me smiling.
♦ This may sound trite, but I always say that on my tombstone, I want to be remembered as “Mike was a nice guy.” That would make me happy.
