Low cost glasses to be available for seniors in East Point

Fulton County and East Point NORC (Naturally Occurring Retirement Communities) will host a Vision Clinic for senior residents of East Point over the age of 60. The Vision Clinic will be held Thursday, February 16, 2012, at 9:00 AM at Peachtree City Christian Church (formerly East Point  Christian Church ) located at 1706 Washington Avenue in East Point.

The East Point NORC Vision Clinic is an effort to promote proper eye care to seniors as well as provide affordable eye exams and glasses to seniors who are uninsured and unable to afford a regular eye exam and glasses. There is a $10 fee for all seniors who wish to participate. Seniors may bring in a prescription for glasses or have a full eye exam and choose a pair of glasses.

Registration is MANDATORY and space is very limited.  A completed registration packet and fee payment guarantees participation in the vision clinic.

The East Point NORC is a part of Fulton County’s Office of Aging and is founded on the principles that individuals can live in their homes and communities throughout their lifetime with the support of their family, friends and neighbors.  The East Point NORC provides services that assist seniors in conducting their daily activities, and promotes programs that encourage seniors in the areas of fall prevention, healthy aging and home safety education.

The Vision Clinic is being conducted by Prevent Blindness Georgia.  The program’s purpose is to preserve a lifetime of sight for all Georgians especially children, seniors, and those without access to eye care. Participants receive vision screenings, eye exams, and education.
