Penn Sight Savers will come to your health fair

Posted by on January 5, 2009

Penn Sight Savers at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine will provide free eye exams and screenings for eye diseases such as glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy at non-profit events and health fairs.

The organization consists of University of Pennsylvania medical students that work with ophthalmologists from the Scheie Eye Institute in West Philadelphia.  They bring all the equipment necessary to provide a complete eye exam. Their primary goal is to detect individuals who may unknowingly be suffering from a progressive, but treatable disease like glaucoma.

To request services for your organization, email and include information about the health fair that you may be organizing.
