Greater Philadelphia Asian Americans Lions Club, in cooperation with Wills Eye Hospital, hosted Glaucoma Awareness events at several locations in early August. By taking the sessions to locations convenient to Asian-American senior citizens, they reached a tremendous number of people who might not otherwise get good eye care. These sessions were followed by 2 days of free Glaucoma Screenings in the Club office, provided by doctors and nurses from Wills. Those sessions were so popular that more people wanted to be seen than could be accommodated, so 2 additional days of screenings were added in September! The GPAALC thanks the professionals from Wills Eye Hospital for assisting us in providing this valuable service right in our community!
