MARCH IS SAVE YOUR VISION MONTH
Prevent Blindness Wisconsin Educates Community Participants For Free
Community Health Charities of Wisconsin wants to help protect your vision. Prevent Blindness Wisconsin, a Community Health Charities of Wisconsin member is rolling out a new service to help preserve everyone’s vision.
Now at Prevent Blindness Wisconsin, people can schedule a time for a Prevent Blindness representative to come to a business or public location and talk to a group about eye health and eye safety. The 45 minute presentation is absolutely no cost to the participants and contains plenty of valuable information.
“Public awareness and education play such an important role in helping to preserve our vision, and Erica from our office does a fantastic job of teaching about eye health and safety,” says Tami Radwill, Program Director at Prevent Blindness Wisconsin. “Knowing the signs and symptoms of eye problems can really aid in the early diagnosis and treatment to common eye ailments.”
Presentations can be general in nature, making them perfect for children in school, at group functions such as Boy/Girl Scouts events or even for a sports team. There is also the option to discuss specific eye conditions in greater detail, such as macular degeneration, cataracts and glaucoma. Specific condition presentations work very well with older adults in senior living facilities, senior activity groups and senior day programs.
For more information on this meaningful program, or to schedule Erica at your next get together, please call (414) 765-0505, email Erica@preventblindnesswisconsin.org or visit www.preventblindness.org/wi.
Since 1958, Prevent Blindness Wisconsin has provided free, direct sight-saving services throughout Wisconsin.
