Vision Care Service West (VCS West) will be held ‘The 6th LA eye camp’ in LA on Apr 23, 2016. VCS has been providing free ophthalmology service in LA area, due to the medical care cost in the United States is high and many undocumented immigrants, especially those of Korean, can not get proper treatment due to lack of government’s medical support.
Normally, a single eye camp can provide eye checkup to about 100 people free of charge, and we provide free surgery service to around 10 cataract patients. Because we hold eye check-ups and surgeries annually free of charge, we are receiving a lot of complimentary responses for bringing light of hope to the visually impaired patients.
– Time: Apr 23, 2016 9:00am to 12:00am – Location: LA Korean Consulate General (3243 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90010) – Host: Vision Care Service West (VCS West) , Hwarang Leo Club – Tel: 213-281-2617
For those who inquired us through phone for an appointment, we provide an event guidance call. The eye check-up is on first come first serve basis. For those who are diagnosed of cataract, we ask for a letter of self-introduction and a recommendation letter (from church, organization etc.) via mail, then provide surgeries to those who qualify.
