April Showers Bring May Flowers
By: Carrie Turley, O.D.
Please be aware that there has been another rash of burglaries at Optometry offices. The most recent burglary occured the weekend of April 28, 2013 from a second story office in Chula Vista. They used a 8-foot ladder to climb up to the second floor, and go to the side exterior door to let the other burglars in. They attempted to crobar their way in first, and then smashed the front door, and destroyed the glass of 4 displays of glass.
Sponsored by the California Optometric Association (COA), www.EyeHelp.org is a public service to raise awareness about the importance of routine comprehensive eye exams and vision care in the state of California.
