The team from Medical Eye Center volunteers to provide eye exams, optical services and surgery for low income and uninsured patients served locally by La Clinica. Monthly eye care clinics are now being offered at La Clinica offices in Central Point and around the valley. In the first year of this program, 200 patients were seen and 25 vision-restoring surgeries were performed—several on patients who were blind and could not otherwise afford treatment.
“We’re so grateful to Dr. Imperia and his staff for their generous support,” says Medical Director Dr. Ken Rhee. “They’re filling a great need in our community for low cost eye exams and glasses. Our patients are extremely grateful!” For more information, visit the La Clinica website.
