Free Exams for People with Diabetes

Saint Peter’s University Hospital will conduct free eye, blood pressure and foot screenings for people with diabetes at its Family Health Center on May 16.

Known as Project B.E.S.T. (Better Eye Health Services and Treatment), the program will be hosted by Saint Peter’s University Hospital and is sponsored by the N.J. Department of Human Services Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired and the N.J. Department of Health.  The eye screening is for the benefit of individuals with diabetes who do not receive regular eye care due to inadequate or lack of health insurance coverage.

Saint Peter’s medical residents will also conduct foot examinations and blood pressure screenings. Visitors will receive test results during their visit as well as medical counseling and referrals, if necessary. Those who need corrective eye glasses will be referred to appropriate resources. Regular eye, blood pressure, foot and kidney checkups can prevent vision loss, amputation and kidney failure in diabetics.

Healthy refreshments will be served.

The program is free but pre-registration is required. Please call Saint Peter’s University Hospital at (732) 339-7672 or (732) 745-6642 to pre-register or for more information.

Visitors under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Eye drops used during the exam cause temporary blurring of vision, so participants should come with a driver.

English/Spanish-speaking staff will be available to assist Spanish-speaking participants.
