Aurora of CNY Offers Monthly Vision Screening

Aurora of CNY, Inc. is offering free vision screening at its office at 518 James Street in Syracuse.

The next screenings will be held from 11:00 a.m.until 12:00 p.m.on July 24, August 13, September 18, October 5, November 5 and December 12.

Each screening takes approximately 15 minutes; appointments can be scheduled by calling Aurora at 422-7263.

Vision screening is a non-medical test that evaluates a person’s visual acuity and checks for color-blindness, field-of-vision defects and other conditions. If the screening reveals a possible problem, a visit to a physician is recommended.

“People should call early so they can schedule a screening that’s most convenient for them,” said David DeFrancis,Aurora’s outreach director.

Aurora, the only non-profit that works exclusively with people in Central New York who are deaf, blind, visually impaired or hard of hearing, is a United Way agency of Central New York and Oswego and Cayuga counties.
