Eye Van coming to town

Press Release

Do you have diabetes, glaucoma, macular degeneration, or a family history of eye disease?
Are you experiencing abnormal vision?
If so, contact your family doctor, optometrist, or nurse practitioner for a referral to the CNIB Eye Van.
An ophthalmologist will examine your eyes on site.
You also may be screened for diabetes, or have your blood sugar checked if you are diabetic.
The Northern Diabetes Health Network is offering diabetes education and screening services at the Eye Van location this year as part of the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care’s Ontario Diabetes Strategy.
Appointments on the Eye Van are limited. Patients who need routine eye examinations or prescription glasses should see an optometrist.
Priority is given to patients with medical eye concerns and referrals.
The Eye Van will visit Fort Frances from July 14-23. It will be parked at Rainycrest (550 Osborne St.)
Contact your doctor or optometrist for a referral now. Appointments fill up quickly.
Eye Van appointments are booked by Cathy Handberg at 274-2042.
The Eye Van’s visit to Fort Frances is sponsored by the Fort Frances Lions Club.
