Being a mom means so much more than the title suggests. Moms have the skills of a chef, the endurance of a marathon runner, and have enough patience to fill a dozen virtues. Moms juggle more schedules than most circus performers, making sure everyone makes it to play dates, piano practice and the dentist clean and on-time. With an already hectic schedule, it’s hard to imagine adding an annual eye exam to the list. What you may not know is a comprehensive eye exam can reveal potential medical conditions, before any outward symptoms become noticeable.

It’s said that whenever George Washington felt a cold coming on, he would eat an onion, believing it would help keep the illness away. If nothing else, it would keep meetings shorter.

The question is, why does cutting onions make our eyes tear up?
If you’re new to town or this is your first time exploring Chandler, Arizona, then you’re in the right spot. Chandler has been a town of firsts since its beginning.
In 1891, Dr. Alexander Chandler settled on a ranch south of Mesa. He was the first veterinary surgeon in the area. Eventually, the area became known as the Chandler Ranch and was the site chosen for the luxurious Hotel San Marco, the state’s first golf resort. Chandler officially became a town in 1912, which of course means the town’s centennial celebration is currently underway!
