Vision Resources' Prevention Specialists are making a difference:

Thank you so much for coming to U-GRO and providing the screening.  Without that we would not have known she (daughter) needed correction in her left eye.  Because it was caught at such a young age, there is a chance the glasses will correct the problem.  She just received her glasses in June and has been doing great with them.
