“Save Your Vision Month is all about promoting vision health and regular eye exams. With many of us spending hours in front of screens of various types (computers, phones video games, etc.), it is more important than ever to have your eyes examined regularly.

Eye examinations may help to prevent vision loss, and can greatly improve your day to day quality of life,” stated Dr. Robert Gordon, Associate Dean of Clinical Affairs for WesternU Eye Care Center. “Celebrating our first Save Your Vision month is really exciting. We are looking forward to connecting with our community and ensuring their vision health is a top priority,” continued Dr. Gordon.

Contestants are automatically entered into the giveaway by “liking” WesternU Patient Care Center’s Facebook page. Each prize pack is filled with contents from the Eye Care Center valued at more than $50.
