Two eye health experts join us to discuss the importance of regular eye exams for children and adults. Our vision impacts nearly everything we do and is important to protect and correct when there is a problem. Dr. Justin Bazan discusses eye exams for kids and how vision problems can impact learning and how regular screenings can make a difference. He also shares how we can help children in the Boys & Girls Club of America receive free eye exams and glasses through the VSP Eye Pledge campaign. VSP has pledged to donate up to 50,000 eye exams and a brand new pair of glasses to kids in the Club who need them. Dr. Joshua Stein talks about glaucoma and who is at risk for developing this condition which, if left undiagnosed and untreated, can lead to partial to complete blindness. Dr. Stein tells us who should be tested, how it is diagnosed, the risk factors for developing glaucoma, and how it is treated. Kim Mance, host of the web series, Galavanting.tv, tells us a surprising bit of information about vacations and how America is the "No Vacation Nation" when compared to European workers. She tells us of the importance of using our vacation time and how we can save some money on our next vacation by taking advantage of a new vacation savings partnership between Groupon and Expedia called Groupon Getaways.
