On Saturday, Drs. Reyes and Weaver of the Belton Eye Care Center held an eye care screening clinic from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Eye Care Center, 2609 North Main Street in Belton. All ages were welcomed, no appointments are necessary and the screenings were free.
This clinic was being held in conjunction with the local Lions Club, and was part of the Lions Club International campaign, “Sharing the Vision”. During the month of October, club members are encouraged to reach out in their community with a vision-based project. Saturday’s clinic is Reyes and Weaver’s way of reaching out. Since a person goes blind every five minutes, the importance and urgency of these efforts cannot be overstated.
