Senior Eye Care

Open enrollment ends December 7th, 2011. Get the facts on your eye care from Dr. Jack Schaeffer.

By age 65, 1-in-3 Americans have some form of vision-impairing eye disease. It is absolutely vital that seniors get regular eye exams to check for vision conditions that can lead to partial or permanent vision loss.
