Help our Chattanooga Homeless Community
Freezing temperatures have officially descended onto Chattanooga, leaving at-risk homeless populations vulnerable to its effects. This year, the usual need for warm clothing has been exacerbated by the Covid-19 Pandemic. Its negative impact on so many lives has made the need for coats greater than ever before.
November is #DiabeticEyeDiseaseAwarenessMonth
If you’ve received a diabetes diagnosis, you may not have thought about how the disease can affect your eyes. Adjusting to the diabetic lifestyle involves revamping your eating habits, exercising regularly and keeping up with your blood sugar levels—all time-consuming tasks. However, as with other serious chronic medical conditions, it’s important to know how diabetes can affect your entire body. That’s why Allied Eye joins the American Academy of Ophthalmology in observing Diabetic Eye Disease Awareness Month each November.
Here at Allied Eye, we consider it an honor to join the Susan G. Komen Foundation in the fight to end breast cancer forever. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM) and we are pleased to announce several opportunities for you to join us in providing hope and help to those struggling with this disease.
If your vision isn’t what it used to be, there’s no reason to settle for living life out of focus. Thanks to technological advances, there are more solutions for common vision problems than ever before.
Corrective lenses are still the most common method of vision correction. They’re affordable, customized for you, and the prescription can easily be changed when needed. If you want something more permanent, LASIK refractive surgery may be the perfect solution. If your vision problems are caused by cataracts, a lens implant can restore your vision. Read on to learn more about Allied Eye’s top three pathways to better vision.
