Optometrist Dr. Michael Vaske is offering a significant discount
on eye exams in order to assist people who need vision check-up in
tandem with helping his community food pantry.
Dr. Vaske is looking to assist the people in his community who have
lost their vision coverage due to job loss by offering optometry
services at a fraction of his normal rate. For $39, patients will
receive a comprehensive eye exam with all proceeds going to the
Parker Task Force Food Bank or the patient's favorite
Dr. Vaske was inspired to produce this community effort after
reading a report in the New York Times about how an increasing
number of Americans are going hungry. He notes that many of these
people have also lost their jobs and can therefore no longer afford
to go to an eye doctor. Eye examinations may detect potentially
treatable blinding eye diseases, ocular manifestations of systemic
disease, or signs of tumors or other anomalies of the brain.
"I want to do my part to ensure that Americans stay healthy and to
help those who are going hungry by sponsoring this food drive for
the residents of our community," explains Dr. Vaske. He elaborates
further by saying $39 will improve a person's vision health and
feed two families at the same time.
The community discount program spearheaded by Dr. Vaske to benefit
people in need of vision care as well as the local food bank will
remain in effect until Aug. 31.
