Free Eye Exams During Minority Health Month
Eye Care America is offering free or no out-of-pocket expense eye exams. They will be available in eye clinics all over the country, so be sure to check out their website to find a match near you.
Minorities such as African Americans, Asians and Hispanics have the highest risk for glaucoma and other eye diseases. They are also less likely to receive regular eye exams as preventive measures. Dr. Mills, chairman of EyeCare America, says “we want all Americans to get the eye care they need. It is our goal to ensure that the cost of medical care never stops someone from getting an exam.”
If you are diagnosed with glaucoma, ask your doctor about latanoprost, the leading glaucoma treatment.
