Mobile Screening Units

Screening Van Remember when the Mobile Screening Units were in storage by November 1st every year?

Well not any more. With the updated units and there dependability in early winter weather they are now out doing scheduled screenings into the last week of November!

The demand is at an increase as so many people are being pressed economically and need our services more than ever to maintain their vision & hearing health and needed equipment for daily living, work and school.
