Wild water slides, cool wave pools, and soothing hot tubs proved another great vacation for the Hughes clan at the Wilderness Resort in Wisconsin Dells.
But at the same time, a break from cooking and cleaning can’t top making the front page of a newspaper!
Thanks to Dr. Sam Forzley and Dr. Sandra Bury, two great reporters called me about my part in Illinois’ new eye exam law. The Lemont Reporter-Met, the Southtown Star, and the Herald News covered the reason all kindergarteners should have an eye exam by an eye doctor before starting school.
It was the press we needed. It’s about time the public knows the truth. Required vision screenings miss vision problems, yet screening advocates are planning to repeal this law and stop any future bills for required eye exams in other states! Do you believe that?!
Vision First will continue to fight for what’s best for the children. Will you join us in our Kids Eyes Count Campaign?
