Starting July 19, 2017, ACHN will be able to provide free eye exams to registered ACHN patients once they have been screened by our primary care providers.
In addition to providing routine eye exams, ACHN can now offer annual eye check ups for diabetics and hypertensives. Diabetic retinopathy is one of the first complications of uncontrolled diabetes. There are no symptoms in the early stages. If unchecked, it can progress from floaters and blurred vision to blindness.
A typical eye exam can cost from $45 – $99 with eye glasses costing extra. Thanks to the generosity of the McLean Islamic Center, Dr. Ahmed Zahir, OD and Dr. Omar Chaudhary, ACHN can now provide these much needed eye exams for free, on site!
