V.I.P. and Primary Eyecare Center of Selma, Alabama hosts a free vision screening for Glaucoma. In 2 hours 15 individuals were screened. Some of them were treated and will have t have a follow up visit. Due to elevated eye pressure.

Glaucoma is the leading cause of blindness and if no treated blindness can occur.

V.I.P. would like to thank Dr. Kristina Lovinggod O.D. for her dedication to helping us promote Glaucoma and for doing the screening at her office.

The partnership helped those patients screened not lose sight due to Glaucoma. "V.I.P. and Primary Eyecare Center will continue to educate people of Dallas County about eye diseases and be treated." V.I.P. C.E.O. William H. Bowman says

In picture Dr. Lovinggood with V.I.P. C.E.O. William H. Bowman and V.I.P. Co-Chairman of the Board Michael Jackson. Jackson was also examined while there and found out he need some treatment for Glaucoma due to elevated eye pressure.

Jackson said, " I am glad this organization is sponsoring this event. " "I have been putting off going to see the eye doctor for a while." "I Knew I needed to come to support V.I.P. so, it was a perfect time to find this out." "I will be back for treatment." "I am glad we caught it before it got worse." Jackson says.
