Protecting Your Family: Understanding Accident Plans
Summer is right around the corner...and with warmer weather comes more opportunity for children to be injured. 

Many families today face large deductibles and aren't prepared for the expenses resulting from an injury. Fortunately there are affordable accident plans that will pay you a cash benefit in the event of an accident or injury.  That cash can be used to cover deductible expenses, prescription or medical device cost, and even expenses like extra housekeeping or childcare.  

Be Prepared. 

Call your Advisor to learn more.

Screen Time and Your Child's Health 
We all know that screen time isn't great for kids, but it seems unavoidable these days. So how much is too much?

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends keeping all screens off around babies and toddlers younger than 18 months. They say a little screen time can be okay for older toddlers, and children 2 and older should get no more than an hour of screen time per day.  

Your Vision Health: 8 Signs You Might Need an Eye Exam
Vision can change quite a bit over the course of a year, especially for those over the age of 50, and it is important to know when to schedule an exam.

Here are 8 signs that you should get a vision exam on the calendar soon:
  1. Your eyes are red, dry, itchy, or you are seeing spots, flashes of light, or floaters.
  2. You have diabetes or another health condition that affects your eyes. Also, if you have a family history of conditions like diabetes or glaucoma you may need exams more often, especially as you move into your 50's and beyond.
  3. You can't remember when you last had an eye exam. If it's been longer than a year, you're overdue.
  4. You have difficulty driving at night and seeing street signs in the dark.
  5. You experience eye strain, headaches and/or blurred vision after spending an extended amount of time in front of a computer screen.
  6. You get motion sick, dizzy, or have trouble following a moving target.
  7. You hold books or the newspaper further away from your face and squint or close one eye to read them clearly.
  8. You notice any changes in your vision, especially after an incident of head trauma.
Keep in mind that an eye exam benefits more than just your eyes.
