MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich. -
The Coburn-Kleinfeldt Eye Clinic in Madison Heights is offering free medical eye screenings for City of Detroit retirees on May 29. A board-certified ophthalmologist will examine patients for glaucoma, diabetic eye disease (retinopathy), macular degeneration, and cataracts. Due to Detroit's financial problems, most City of Detroit retirees no longer have city-paid vision insurance and many have had changes to their health insurance. The free eye screenings are being offered to help workers during the transition period. Detroit police and fire retirees, as well as general City of Detroit retirees are eligible. The event will be held Thursday, May 29 from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Coburn-Kleinfeldt Eye Clinic 301 W. 13 Mile Road Madison Heights (between I-75 and John R)
Appointments are required and can be made by calling (586) 354-9190 during business hours. Free refreshments and a limited supply of eye drops will be available at the screening.
