Sight is one of five valuable senses. While not everyone is going to have perfect 20/20 vision, eyesight is crucial to everything that takes place in our life. From how you assess safety and recognize faces, to understanding non-verbal cues, avoiding danger and learning, your vision shapes your world.

Got milk? The very same milk you pour over your cereal or into your coffee can save your life.
