Grayling is located in the middle of Northern Michigan and is easily accessed by the numerous freeways making it the “gateway” to the north. Grayling is a favorite tourist spot and one its’ most popular annual events is the AuSable River Canoe Marathon that has taken place every July since 1947. “The Marathon”, is not for the faint of heart and consists of a non-stop 120-mile race that starts at night with a running-start to the river, and ends on the shores of Lake Huron the next afternoon. The canoe race starts in total darkness on the winding narrow passages of the river that hosts many obstacles such as fallen tree branches, rocks and random stumps. Near the end of the race, contestants are fighting the scorching summer sun. This is not a race for families or the casual canoer. Top notch professionals in peak physical condition come from all over the world to compete in this grueling race.
An important part of being in peak condition is maintaining your eye health. Alpine Eye Care encourages residents of Grayling and other up north cities to remember to include annual vision screenings in part of their overall health regime. People often wait until they notice a problem before they see the eye doctor but that’s a mistake. Many conditions of the eye are silent and have no initial symptoms at first. Not being aware of one of these conditions until it’s too late can cause loss of vision, so even if you don’t wear glasses or think you need an eye exam, you still do. Only with a dilated, comprehensive eye examination, can doctors look inside your eye and examine blood vessels directly, detecting signs and symptoms of vascular disease caused by diabetes. With a thorough eye exam, early signs of diabetic retinopathy, such as leaking or damage blood vessels, retina swelling, and deposits on the retina can be detected. Eye exams can even detect serious illnesses, like high cholesterol and brain tumors.
