The fall brings on many delicious opportunities to enjoy some of our favorite foods. But many of those favorites are also loaded in sugar and calories. Fast approaching is November which is Diabetes Awareness Month. My father is diabetic and I have become diabetic since having suffered from gestational diabetes with my younger son.
Diabetes is a silent enemy and over 90 percent of severe vision loss and blindness are caused by a serious vision condition called diabetic retinopathy. This can be identified and addressed early on based on the changes that occur in the eye that are visible during a comprehensive eye exam from an eye doctor.
Join Transitions Optical and Latina Mom Bloggers on October 22nd for an important chat, “How are your EYES?” Annual Vision Screening Twitter Party. With the year-end fast approaching, it is time to have your eyes examined if you haven’t already done so.
We’ll be chatting about the causes of Diabetes which can include family heritage, age, ethnicity, obesity, habits and lifestyles. We also have great prizes including a set of prescription glasses fitted with Transitions Lenses valued up to $500!
Transitions® lenses are the #1 recommended adaptive lenses worldwide and are an ideal choice for healthy sight. Transitions lenses block 100 percent of harmful UVA and UVB rays – helping to protect the health and wellness of your eyes – so you can see better.
Transitions Optical understands that vision problems can affect anyone, but certain ethnics groups are more likely to develop eye- and overall-health issues that can take a serious toll on their vision and quality of life. Through its various web platforms and programs, Transitions Optical is helping to educate and motivate consumers nationwide, particularly in ethnics groups such as Hispanics, African American and Asian American, to visit an eye doctor regularly for comprehensive eye exams, helping with the early detection of vision conditions, such as diabetic retinopathy.
