Midwest Sight Foundation, NFP was created to meet the needs of our community. We find it troubling that there are still patients in the community whom have glaucoma, but haven't had it detected yet. These patients don't tend to find out that they have advanced glaucoma until vision is severely affected by this disease. To prevent glaucoma from further damaging your line of sight, it is strongly suggested to get a yearly screening. Our goal is to go out into the communities to educate and screen the public, free of charge. By doing this we will increase awareness of glaucoma, and hopefully prevent the devastation of blindness from advanced glaucoma.
With the help of a number of companies and Richland Community College, Midwest Sight Foundation has been working on a Walk-In Eye Model that will be displayed at the Children's Museum of Illinois.
The seven foot diameter model will have a four foot opening to allow visitors to enter. It will be displayed in the Healthy Habits area of the museum.
We anticipate the model will be complete and on display sometime during the fall of 2018!
