The Eye Clinic at Community Health Free Clinic provides diagnostic exams and treatment for individuals dealing with eye disease as well as those with poor vision.
Eye disease is often a complication due to chronic conditions such as diabetes. Uninsured and underserved adults are at a higher risk of not receiving eye treatment in a timely manner due to the lack of services available to them. This can lead to permanent damage.
Individuals experiencing vision issues can experience a loss of independence or limitations on everyday functions – unable to drive, read written materials, or secure employment. In some cases, it can be as simple as a pair of reading glasses. In other situations, corrective eye glasses are prescribed.
- Visits for the Eye Clinic are by appointment.
- Vision exams are offered but on a limited basis.
- A prescription for glasses can often be given as part of the exam, but the purchase of glasses usually will be the patient’s responsibility.
- Contact Community Health Free Clinic and you will be notified when an appointment has been made.
