Dr. Rosenak’s Optical Options held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for its new Awesome Eyes Cinema on Sept. 22. The movie-themed room is a great waiting area for kids before their eye appointment. The Awesome Eyes Student Vision Program is geared toward helping families recognize and diagnose vision problems early for school-aged children. To learn more about the program, visit this website. Dr. Rosenak’s Optical Options is located at 2229-A N. Belt Highway.

Dr. Rosenak had local storyteller Will Stuck read stories to children at the ribbon-cutting ceremony in the new Awesome Eyes Cinema.
