Two events incoming, on August 3 & August 17
Strohecker Vision Care in Mansfield, PA is hosting two fun and informative events this month for children and their families. The first of these events is on Friday, August 3 from 8am-5pm. Strohecker Vision Care will be handing out free slices of watermelon to those who stop at their office.
On this broadcast, Home Page correspondent, Olivia Ryan, first spoke with Dr. Lindsay Kibler about their inspiration for celebrating National Watermelon Day. She informed us of the remarkable health benefits of watermelon. This fruit is an excellent source of vitamin A which helps your retina make carotenoids. These carotenoids are very important to keep the retina healthy preventing macular degeneration.
Their second happening this month is Kids Day which will be on August 17 from 4pm-6pm. Kids Day is an opportunity for optometrists and staff to discuss with children and their families the importance of eye care. There will be games, food, demonstrations, prizes and more. Kids may even bring a stuffed animal to have its eyes checked!
