Free eye screening clinic at the library – March 23rd

Free eye screening clinic – registration required

The Linden Public Library is proud to partner with the New Jersey state Commission on the Blind and Visually Impaired (CBVI) to offer free vision screenings at the library to local residents. Advance registration is required. The next clinic will be held on Thursday, March 23rd at 9:30 a.m. The library is located at 31 East Henry Street in Linden.

Project B.E.S.T. (Better Eye-health Services and Treatment) is a state-run and funded program. It is administered by the CBVI and specifically designed for New Jersey residents who are uninsured or under-insured to receive eye screenings and who have not received a recent eye examination. Professional opticians and ophthalmologists will provide these screenings. They are able to write prescriptions for eyeglasses; to check for different vision health issues; and to give referrals for eye specialists, if needed. New Jersey residents aged four years and above are eligible for this free program.

Because of the limited availability of  doctors, advanced registration is required. Walk-ins will not be permitted. Once the maximum number of patients is reached, a waiting list will be started. To make an appointment for the March 23rd clinic, please call Jeff Wayne at the Linden Public Library at 908-298-3830 x34.
