    If you are a NFL referee with vision trouble, you are in luck.

    Louisiana Family Eyecare is offering free eye exams for NFL officials after the New Orleans Saints lost 26-23 to the Los Angeles Rams in overtime in the NFC Championship game.

    The disputed call happened in the last two minutes in regular. Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman committed what appeared to be a pass interference penalty on Saints wide receiver Tommylee Lewis. Instead of having a first down inside the 10-yard line New Orleans settled for a 31-yard Will Lutz field goal to take a 23-20 lead.

    Los Angeles drove 45 yards in nine plays to set up Greg Zuerlein's 48-yard field goal to send it to an overtime period. Another Zuerlein field goal in overtime sent the Rams to the Super Bowl in two weeks.

    “I don’t know if there was ever more obvious pass interference," said Saints head coach.
