Today’s holiday bears the signature of President Lyndon B. Johnson and has been on the books since 1964. It’s White Cane Safety Day! White Cane isn’t a new brand of heroin. It’s an actual cane, the cane carried by many who are blind. It’s visible to motorists and helps the blind get around by sensing obstructions. Celebrating today by playing Blind Man’s Bluff may be in poor taste. Learning more about your eye health is more productive.
I’m 20/20 and I’m proud. However, being a diabetic, I know I have to maintain my health in order to maintain my eye health.

Being born blind is out of your control. Going blind may not be. Take today to learn how your eyes can help you see more than what’s in front of you. Open your eyes, call your optometrist, and…
HOLIDAY ON MY FRIENDS!!!
