TERRE HAUTE — Senior Education Ministries, Inc. has scheduled Dine with a Doc on the second Tuesday of every month from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the  West Vigo Community Center located at 127 W. Johnson Avenue in West Terre Haute.

The event welcomes the senior public to hear a doctor of the month present an educational topic while enjoying a complimentary meal.

At Tuesday’s Dine with a Doc Dr. Charles Rutan, OD, of Advantage EyeCare at 224 Elm St. in  Clinton will be the speaker.

After graduating from the Indiana University School of Optometry in 1987, Rutan returned to his home town of Clinton to begin his career in optometry. He was among the first in Indiana to be board certified in the treatment and management of ocular diseases.

Rutan, also, specializes in low vision and helps those whose eyes have been damaged by disease. All types of contact lenses are filled by Rutan, including lenses that correct astigmatism, overnight corneal refraction therapy (CRT) lenses and bifocal contact lenses. His office (Advantage EyeCare) offers CO-management for the laser correction surgery and cataract surgery as well.

A question/answer period will follow Rutan’s discussion. Lunch will be provided by Westridge Health Care Center.

There will be an opening prayer and devotion at the beginning of the program. Westridge Healthcare will offer a free wellness clinic to assist with blood pressure screening at each of the programs monthly. Additionally, Lauren Davidson from the Purdue Extension will be on hand to help people with nutritional needs.
