Accidents and injuries can happen at any time and in any place. They can also affect any part of our body. Unfortunately, our eyes are particularly delicate and since we rely entirely on them to allow us to see clearly, any damage that they incur could potentially have a catastrophic effect on our vision. While some types of injuries are completely unexpected, it is prudent to take positive steps to protect our eyes if we participate in any activity – vocational or recreational – that could potentially put our eyes at risk.
Community Spotlight: WILD HARE ORGANIC FARM OWNER KATIE GREEN
April 18th, 2019
I think I am drawn to small businesses, both in my career and as a consumer. A smaller economy of scale and a solid ethic of care seem to go hand in hand. I like to support businesses that value the importance of longer-term customer relationships and treat their employees with care and respect. I like it when my exchange as a customer feels like more than just a one-time transaction. I'm more inclined to invest in a business that seems willing to invest in me, my family and community.
Vision Plans: Are they worth the discount?

If you think of your vision plan as being just like your medical insurance, you may need to think again. Some of these programs encourage plan participants to purchase products directly from their own retailers and discourage them from supporting the independent vision clinics they visit for their eyecare. These discount plans solicit their own products rather than promote the best quality products on the market. In doing so, they are limiting members’ choices to those which they own. In fact, at least one of these vision discount plans has opened its own optical retail locations to sell its own brands of eyewear.
