"We want to offer the Los Angeles Hispanic community the opportunity to receive free vision screenings so eye conditions can be detected at an early stage. Those who are at risk of developing an eye condition need to visit their eyecare professional for a comprehensive eye exam," said Martha Rivera, Transitions Optical multicultural marketing manager. "Our partnership with prestigious organizations such as the American Career College, Hacienda La Puente Adult Education and VSP(R) Vision Care further demonstrates Transitions' commitment to educating consumers about the importance of healthy sight and wellness."
Some fair participants could be eligible to receive a gift certificate for a free comprehensive eye exam and a free pair of eyeglasses from VSP when visiting the Transitions booth.
"Participating in the health fair and receiving a vision screening is the first step consumers should take to achieve optimal eye health," said Emelia Essilfie, Program Director of the American Career College. "If you plan on visiting the Transitions booth to receive a free eye screening, please bring at least one member of your family who can also benefit from the opportunity and promote healthy sight among your loved ones."
Along with preventative eyecare, it's important to choose appropriate eyewear that will protect the eyes from the dangers of the sun. Photochromic lenses, like Transitions(R) lenses, block 100% of harmful UV rays, reduce discomforting glare and improve contrast in all light conditions, helping to preserve long-term eye health.
