Have you started your holiday shopping yet, making your list and checking it twice? If you are struggling to find the perfect gift for that special someone this year, look no further. Finding the right holiday gift for a health-minded person can often be a frustrating task. You may think a cookbook, a health & wellness gift, or a gift card for a healthy meal delivered are fantastic health-conscious choices. Sometimes, however, the presents they will treasure the most don’t come in a beautifully wrapped box. This holiday season, give your loved ones something they will cherish for a lifetime – the gift of healthy eyes.
Whether they are interested in Lasik or Cataract surgery or need to get an eye issue checked out, Georgia Eye Physicians & Surgeons can help or assess the most complex eye problems. It’s a fact that many of the most common eye diseases such as glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, or even multiple sclerosis either have no or very unusual warning signs or symptoms. This means they can continue to develop and worsen without the person knowing, potentially leading to long-term vision issues or even blindness. Scheduling a comprehensive eye exam is the best way to ensure any issues are detected while they are still in their earliest and most treatable stages.
Slip a note in a holiday card with this sight-saving reminder: “Don’t forget to schedule your comprehensive eye exam.” Then volunteer to be their chauffeur and drive them to their eye care appointment. This can be an excellent way to show the people that you care about most and that you really wish them the best, while also helping them keep their eyes healthy. In the case that eyeglasses or contact lenses will be needed, our in-house optical center can add extra convenience to any visit to our office.
Our goal is always to help our patients achieve lifelong eye health. And this holiday season can be a great time for you and the people in your life to take a proactive approach to the health and wellness of their eyes. Don’t forget that time is running out to take advantage of reached insurance deductibles and flexible spending accounts before the end of the year. If for whatever reason you don’t have health insurance or your plan does not cover eye care services, ask about our out-of-pocket payment options. To schedule an appointment for a comprehensive eye exam or any of our other professional eye care services with Dr. William Segal or Dr. Marc Lay, contact Georgia Eye Physicians & Surgeons today.
