National Campaign Reminds Seniors: "The Best Things in Life are FREE!" including an eye exam and a book of eye-healthy dessert recipes

San Francisco, CA -- This February, EyeCare America is reminding seniors that sometimes, "The Best Things in Life are Free," and, that you can't put a price tag on love, friendship or the importance of eye sight. This Valentine's Day campaign encourages those age 65 and older to call EyeCare America's Seniors EyeCare Program to see if they qualify for a free exam.

EyeCare America's national Valentine's Day health campaign runs through the month of February encouraging people to call the EyeCare America Seniors EyeCare Program. This program offers eye exams and up to one year of medical care at no out-of-pocket cost for seniors who are without an ophthalmologist (a medical eye doctor). To see if you, a loved one or a friend, 65 and older, is eligible to receive a referral for an eye exam and care, call 1-800-222-EYES (3937). The Seniors EyeCare Program help line operates 24 hours a day, every day, year-round.

"Blindness and vision impairment have enormous personal, social and economic costs, limiting the activities of otherwise healthy and active people," said Richard P. Mills, MD. "By increasing awareness of eye disease, its risk factors and connecting more people with the exams and care they need, EyeCare America works to reduce preventable blindness in the U.S. thereby allowing our seniors to live more fulfilling and active lives."

As part of this national campaign, celebrity chefs from around the country have contributed delicious eye-healthy desserts for two that are perfect accompaniment to any romantic Valentine's Day dinner. All recipes are made with foods filled with eye healthy vitamins and antioxidants both of which have been proven to help preserve eyesight. Recipes can be found on
