7 Reasons You May Need to Get Your Vision Checked

There are some things in life that naturally end up higher on your priority list, like getting the car inspected or changing the batteries in the smoke alarm. Granted, those things typically have some urgency behind them, since you can’t very well drive a car with outdated tags, and the smoke alarm has a very shrill way of grabbing your attention when the batteries are low on juice.

But there are also plenty of things that ought to get the same level of urgency behind them. Getting an eye exam is one of those things.

It shouldn’t be an afterthought, but it is. Even though most people can stay on top of their eye health with just one visit a year to the eye doctor, many men and women wind up going to an ophthalmologist or optometrist only when they think something’s wrong with their vision.

How Women’s Golf Wear Evolved Through the Years

These days, when we think of women golfers, top professional athletes like Lydia Ko, Lexi Thompson, and Inbee Park come to mind. In our heads, we see these modern players donned up in today’s standard golf wear—collared polo shirts, slacks, spiked golf shoes, plus a cap or a visor to keep the sun away from their eyes. We’d probably also imagine women golfers in capri pants, shorts, and skorts in warmer weather conditions.

The hottest news in coffee? Cold brew.

Maybe it’s because I’ve only lived in the South (now, Southwest), but I’ve always preferred my coffee cold. Lately, the buzz in chilled coffee is all about cold brew. Whereas traditional iced coffee is brewed hot like normal and then iced down, cold brew is never exposed to heat.

Major retailers are starting to catch on to cold brew now, but I can honestly say I’ve been on the train for quite some time. I love that its taste is smoother than iced coffee and seems easier on the tummy (probably because of the reduction in acidity), but it actually packs a way more powerful caffeine punch.
