Keep Your Eye Peeled For The Eye Unit
On a clear day, certain someones can see forever, though for many it’s hindsight that’s always 20/20. If you fall into the latter category, then keep this newspaper around until tomorrow, and feast your eyes upon this article again, because this information is going to help you see far into a future, so bright you’ve gotta wear shades.
The Arizona Medical Eye Unit from the Lions Vision Center, Inc will be at the Lions Club on Main Street in Mammoth, on Monday, January 5, from 8:30 a.m. – 1 p.m for the potential benefit of the residents of the Town of Mammoth as well as surrounding localities.
Need an appointment? Call 487-2647 to set one up, or to ask for more information from the San Pedro Valley Lions Club. Be quick about it, if you suspect, or know, you have an eye problem, as only 20-30 patients can be examined each day. There is a fee of $35 per patient, which is charged to cover some of the operational expenses of the Unit.
For those who are new to the subject, credit for the completely equipped Arizona Medical Eye Unit, all $150,000 worth, goes to the Odd Fellows and Rebekahs of Arizona, who donated it to the Lions Vision Center, Inc. Credit for getting it to Mammoth goes to Canyon Ranch Health Resorts, who kindly donated the Ford F-350 truck; while the Arizona Ophthalmological Society should be well thanked for sponsoring the Unit, including all the doctors who have very kindly donated their time and energy.
I know I’m going to send a thank you card to the Lions and everyone else, for the help they gave my daughter a few years ago, just as soon as I can see well enough to find my pen.
