August is COVD’s Vision and Learning Month. At the beginning of each school year, we take this opportunity to encourage parents to schedule a full developmental eye examination for their child(ren). Not only are we here for your children, but for your entire family’s vision needs! Call (248) 539-4800 to schedule an appointment today!
