EyeCare America is a non-profit organization which provides eye treatment for people who need it, but can’t afford it–for one year. As you grow older, so do your eyes. Eye problems can be hereditary. Cataracts, Diabetic Retinopathy, Glaucoma and Macular Degeneration (AMD) are only a few of the problems that crop-up by the time you reach your 60s. The EyeCare America web site is as follows: http://www.eyecareamerica.org.
The Organization screens people who either cannot pay for the treatment or the co-pay, and matches them-up with local Ophthalmologists who volunteer their time and services. If you need help, and there are nearby Specialists who are willing to help, check the EyeCare America’s web site or call their toll-free number. Also, thanks for passing the name and contact information.
