Visionworks is teaming up with Little League: Get Your Kids Eyes Examined!

My daughter told me she needed glasses for two full years before I got her to the optometrist. She had passed all the tests at school and at the pediatrician's office, so I figured she just wanted glasses like her good friend. She is a very fashionable little girl, so I figured she was trying to get another accessory for her Caboodle. It was not until last Spring when I went for my own eye … [Read More...]

What to pack in the car… so you have what you need for school drop off each morning!

We went on a weekday afternoon and just drove up, paid $5 for our day … [Read More...]

Just from watching the … [Read More...]
