Congressman Turner to Hold Free Glaucoma Screening Event

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: New York

Congressman Bob Turner (NY-09) is sponsoring an event to provide free glaucoma tests to area residents on Monday, May 21st as part of Healthy Vision Month (HVM).

"The key to preventing blindness from glaucoma is early detection," Congressman Turner said. "Ensuring that everyone, especially those in high-risk demographics such as seniors over the age of 60, receive screenings by eye care professionals, and, if need be, are referred to the appropriate care providers for follow up is essential. Initiatives such as this, coupled with efforts to expand access to healthcare and make prescription drugs more affordable, will help make the "golden years' truly golden for America's seniors."
