DID YOU KNOW

Eye disease is widespread from children to adults. There are thousands of people who go without eye care and eyeglasses due to low income. Eye disease should be treated properly and timely. Lack of care, exams, and treatment may cause severe eyesight loss. So people consider it as a costly treatment because there are so many processes of treatment that are costly indeed. But there is the hope of assistance to help low-income people. There are free eye care and eyeglasses for low-income available from different organizations at free of cost according to their eye health needs.
