Many people have a hard time maintaining their health. There are so many different things to monitor and manage! However, your smartphone can help you be your personal best without any stress. Here are a few apps that will keep you healthy from head to toe.
Worsening vision is a problem we associate with old age, but it begins to gradually occur when people are relatively young. Changes in vision often go unnoticed because they happen so slowly. Unfortunately, this means that many people are unaware that they need vision aids such as glasses or laser eye surgery. In addition, changes in vision can be a symptom of various diseases and health problems, meaning a trip to the doctor could be needed. This app offers a variety of vision tests to help make sure your eyesight is up to par. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/vision-test/id380288414?mt=8
