Applications Available For Free Vision-Care Clinic

Are you in need of an eye exam or other vision-care services, but cannot afford it?

If so, plans are being made for the annual free Visual Clinic for individuals in the community who need this extra health-care support.

The clinic is made possible through the Blanche W. Grady Community Service Award.

Applications can be picked up now through Oct. 22 in the main lobby at Laughlin Memorial Hospital, 1420 Tusculum Blvd., from weekdays from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., or the Greene County Health Department, 810 W. Church St., weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Those desiring visual services must return the completed application and bring qualifying information to Laughlin Hospital on Oct. 23, from 8 to 10:30 a.m., to be considered for free visual care.

Priority for vision care will be given to those individuals who have not had an eye examination or received glasses within the last five or more years, although others in need should apply.

The next priority group will be within a four- year range, and, then, three years, until all available appointments are filled.

To receive vision care, individuals must provide verification of income by bringing the following items to Laughlin Hospital on Wednesday, Oct. 23:

* their Visual Clinic application;

* their 2012 W-2 form, a copy of their last check stub from either work, Social Security, disability, etc.), or

* if the applicant has no income, he/she must bring a written statement that is signed and dated from the person who provides housing and food, stating their support.

The program is available to those who qualify and meet guidelines established by the local committee and the State of Tennessee income guidelines for healthcare services.

This visual clinic is made possible by funds from the Blanche W. Grady Community Service Award Endowment, a fund within the Laughlin Health Care Foundation, and is in partnership with local eye physicians; the Greene County Health Department; and a host of community volunteers.

Drs. Brad Emde and Shelly Shaw, of Eastview Eye Care, as co-chairs of the visual clinic, have contacted eye physicians in our community to participate in the clinic.

Emde and Shaw report that 100 percent of the eye professionals in the community have agreed to assist with examination and one eye physician just over the Greene County line in Washington County will also be participating.

For additional information about the clinic, call the Laughlin Health Care Foundation at 787-5117.
