Mobile health clinic stops in Seattle; offering free services

Eye-ExamSEATTLE — The national VSP Eye on Diabetes campaign is offering free eye exams, glasses, and screenings for people with diabetes.

The free health services are available for low-income, uninsured, and under-insured residents.  The campaign focuses on increasing health awareness between eye care and a person’s general health.  Doctors can detect diabetes and other diseases through eye exams.

Eye exams will be offered by local optometrists on board a fully-stocked, 40-foot long mobile clinic.  The campaign is hosted by VSP Vision Care, the largest not-for-profit vision benefits and services provider in the U.S., and the Washington Association of Optometric Physicians.

The mobile clinic will be parked from 9:30 a.. to 3:30 p.m. at the Millionaire Club Charity, located at 2515 Western Ave.

    I am a volunteer eye doctor as well and I must say that this program of VSP Vision Care is indeed helpful for our countryman who needs eye check up but can't afford due to their plights. The organization may continue doing such generosity.

    Diabetes is a common diseases now and a greater percentage of people are suffering from it. Diabetes can cause many other problems like eye disease and the patients need to have regular check up. This is a good initiative by mobile health clinics in Seattle that provides free eye check ups, glasses etc for diabetes patients.
