Kearny- The Arizona Medical Eye Unit from the Lions Vision Center, Inc. will be giving Ophthalmological Medical Eye Examinations for the benefit of residents of Kearny and surrounding localities
The Medical Eye Unit will be located at Copper Basin Chamber of Commerce on March 10, from 8:30 am – 4 pm. Appointments and information may be obtained by calling 480-734-4882 or 480-215-6746.
Since only 20 -30 patients can be examined each day, those who suspect they may have eye problems are urged to phone as soon as possible to be assured of an appointment.
The completely equipped Arizona Medical Eye Unit was donated to the Lions Vision Center, Inc., through the Odd Fellows and Rebekahs of Arizona, and is sponsored by the Arizona Ophthalmological Society. The Arizona Ophthalmological Society provides the funding for the 2012 Ford F-350 truck.
Members of the Arizona Ophthalmological Society, Arizona Lions Clubs, and the Odd Fellows and Rebekahs of Arizona unite with other agencies and organizations to bring medical eye services to outlying areas of Arizona where ophthalmic care is not readily available. Arizona Ophthalmologists who are in private practice volunteer their time on the Medical Eye Unit and received no remuneration.
Sponsors of the Arizona Medical Eye Unit in Kearny are the Kearny Women’s Club. This organization is in charge of all arrangements and appointments.
A nominal fee of $40 per patient is charged to cover the operational expenses of the “Unit”.
