Organizations to offer free glaucoma screening

TERRE HAUTE — The Wabash Independent Living and Learning Center, Minority Health Coalition of Vigo County and the Riley Lions Club will offer free glaucoma screening for all ages from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Jan. 26 at the Booker T. Washington Park Community Center, 1101 S. 13th St.

January is National Glaucoma Awareness Month, an important time to spread the word about this sight-stealing disease. Currently, 2.7 million people in the United States over age 40 have glaucoma. Among African-American and Latino populations, glaucoma is more prevalent.

The WILL Center is a nonprofit, nonresidential Independent Living Center in Terre Haute that helps people with all types of disabilities with free programs and services.
