A child’s vision is crucial to their success in the classroom. Dr. Tavel understands the importance of routine eye exams to detect vision problems that may interfere with their development. But Dr. Tavel wants your kids to have more than just healthy vision. Your Indiana eye care doctor wants to make sure all students have the tools they need to excel in the classroom. That’s why, again this year, Dr. Tavel is joining the BackPack Attack school supply drive.
