August is Children’s Eye Health & Safety MonthAugust 1st, 2012
JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA, August 1, 2012- August is Children’s Eye Health & Safety Month, and Clay Eye Physicians & Surgeons would like to education the community on prevention.
“A complete eye exam by an ophthalmologist that you know and trust, literally sets the stage for the next 80 years,” says Dr. Levine, pediatric ophthalmologist with Clay Eye. “Strong vision can be a life-changer for children. I encourage parents to give your child the best chance for success with an eye exam when they’re ready to start school at four or five years old.”
Dr. Levine, who has extensive experience in pediatric ophthalmology, joined the Clay Eye team in July 2011. He is the only pediatric ophthalmologist within the eight physician practice and one of the few pediatric specialists in the region. He’s a resource that parents now have access to right in their own community.
“Good vision is such an important part of a child’s development and is the foundation for education. I suggest if there is a concern, that you get an honest opinion from someone with experience. I have over a decade of experience in pediatric ophthalmology and emphasize a strong connection between doctor and child. While I specialize in kids, but I’m happy to see patients of any age.”
