Taaliyah's First Pair of Glasses

Teamwork makes the dream work at Eye Thrive! Kindergartener Taaliyah recently got her first pair of glasses on the Mobile Vision Clinic. First, Dr. Green identified her prescription through her comprehensive eye exam. Then, Brandon made the glasses on-board using the frames she picked out and fitted them to her face. Finally, Dr. Green, Brandon, and Taaliyah's pal j'Markese checked out the final look before Mary took a first glasses photo and took Taaliyah and j'Markese back to class. From eye exam to clear vision in less than an hour. Enjoy your glasses, Taaliyah!

November is Diabetes Eye Disease Awareness Month

People with diabetes are more likely to develop blinding eye diseases, such as diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and cataracts. Eye Thrive takes extra steps to check and report on the eye health status of our patients with diabetes.
