Each year, nearly 25,000 Americans visit the emergency room due to a workplace eye injury. During Workplace Eye Wellness Month this March, the American Academy of Ophthalmology reminds employers and workers about the importance of wearing certified and approved eye protection.

Did you know Decatur GE Appliance employees are eligible for one free pair of prescription safety glasses per year?

  1. You must have an Up-to-Date Prescription (within last 12months) — if your prescription is not up to date then you will need an eye exam, which if you chose vision insurance is covered.
  2. Take Prescription to Marx Optical (marx marxoptical.com) .
