Prevent Blindness North Carolina is pleased to have received additional funding from the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD) to continue our partnership with EyePACS – an experienced team of optometrists and ophthalmologists who read retinal images and provide timely feedback of screening results. With the use of the EyePACS platform, the average wait time for results is less than 24 hours versus several days. This enables patients to be notified of their screening results and seek any needed professional vision care faster than ever before. To date, 746 adults have benefitted from this program with a goal of screening 1,000 adults by mid-summer.
PBNC is currently recruiting screening sites that would like to participate in our adult vision screening program. Contact Wendy at [email protected] or 919-755-5044 ext 108 for further information.
