An Eye on Vision Issues
Volume 7, Issue 1 Week of July 1 to 7
Hope this newsletter finds you doing well and having a great summer. I am enjoying following the Wimbledon tennis tournament and looking forward to the Olympics coming July 27th.
In the USA, athletes are facing each other testing their skills in hopes of earning a spot on the Olympic team. I enjoy researching several athletes on the Internet and learning his or her story then, following the athlete throughout the Olympic Games. Best of luck to all participants regardless of country of origin.
