April is here and spring is in the air. This month we observe Sports Eye Safety Month and Women's Eye Health Month.

Sports Eye Safety Month is a time to raise awareness on how children and adults can have their eye health protected during recreational activities.  Over 40,000 athletes suffer a preventable eye injury each year!  Wearing protective eyewear is the key to prevention!
