Chico residents in need can go to the Country Waffle Restaurant tomorrow between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. to receive a free eye exam and free glasses if needed.
The VSP eyes of hope program is aimed at improving the lives of people at risk for diabetes, or who have diabetes.
In addition to the eye exams there will be diabetic management education available.
A recent study demonstrated that eye doctors were the first to detect signs of diabetes 34% of the time, high blood pressure 39% of the time, and high cholesterol 62% of the time.
Eye exams will be given on a first come first serve basis.
Country Waffle Restaurant is located at 690 Rio Lindo Ave. in Chico.
