Eye Priority hosting fundraiser to benefit Red, White & Boom
If you are due for an eye exam, schedule it in June at Eye Priority and help support the fireworks celebration while taking care of your eye health.
During the month of June, a portion of Eye Priority’s proceeds from each Optomap digital imaging scan will be donated to the fireworks fund. The quick and painless procedure usually enables patients to avoid dilation drops and provides a clear digital image of the back of the eye.
Eye Priority is at 15725 S. 46th St., Suite 112. To make an appointment, call (480) 893-2300.
