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!
Drink more water!
You’ve heard these words before, but many not have paid as much attention to them as you should. Water makes up half our body weight and is crucial to our well-being, particularly in our dry Arizona climate. Let’s be clear—soda pop and coffee contain water, but plain, old H2O is what keeps the machine well oiled.
Have you grabbed for your water bottle yet? Think about it—your body expects water. It needs water to function, to maintain the proper temperate, remove waste, lubricate your joints, etc.
After a long, stressful week at the office, sometimes a nice glass of wine is the quickest way to unwind, relax, and begin enjoying the weekend.

Eye injuries happen, and often when we least expect them. According to Prevent Blindness America, more than 700,000 Americans injure their eyes at work each year, and another 125,000 injure their eyes at home. Another 40,000 eye injuries occur while playing sports and thousands more go unreported each year. Did you know though up to 90% of all eye injuries could be avoided with the proper eye protection? Sure, safety goggles may not make a fashion statement, but they will protect you from potential blindness and also save you a costly trip to the E.R.
Choosing the right frames for your glasses can feel a bit like picking out a new car. With so many styles and looks, the whole process can leave you feeling overwhelmed and confused. What style speaks to me? How do they work with my face? Do they complement my features or serve as a distraction?

You can never be too cautious when it comes to your health, especially when we’re talking about the health of your eyes. Did you know individuals with either Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes are at risk for Diabetic Retinopathy, a disease which can result in blindness? But wait, there’s good news! As long as you have a comprehensive eye exam annually, you’ll have a good chance of catching the disease before it starts causing significant damage to your vision.
The human body’s system is what we call “interconnected,” meaning that changes in one part of our body, such as our eyes, can actually mean that there’s a change with another part of our body.
By having a comprehensive eye exam, your doctor may be able to spot a medical condition early, and begin a treatment plan before it starts to affect you. Since the eyes live on the surface of our bodies and are see-through, blood vessels, nerves and tissues can be easily viewed with specialized equipment.
