The Novo Nordisk Diabetes Center at CentraState Medical Center, in conjunction with the New Jersey Department of Human Services, Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired, “Project Best,” and New Jersey Department of Health, is offering a free, annual eye screening on Saturday, May 10, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at CentraState’s Donna O’Donnell, RN, Medical Arts Building, 2nd floor, 901 W. Main Street, Freehold.
The screening is for community members who have diabetes and have not seen an ophthalmologist during the past year, or do not have health insurance coverage. Blood pressure, visual acuity, and glaucoma and urine microalbuminuria screenings, along with dilated retinal eye exams will also be offered. Eye drops will be used and can blur vision temporarily, therefore participants must arrange for a ride home.
The screenings are by appointment only and space is limited. To schedule an appointment, call (732) 308-0570 or visit centrastate.com/healthprograms.
