Fairfield Vision Center: Improving Community Members’ Lives

The Fairfield Vision Center sees not only students, but community members as well. A husband and wife, Mary* and John*, who both have diabetes were seen one day by Dr. McManis and they were in great need of vision services. They were both diabetic and at risk for completely losing their eyesight. Mary could only see in black and white and John could only see two feet in front of him at any given moment. They both lost their licenses and could not drive themselves anywhere.

After a consultation with Dr. McManis, Mary was scheduled for a cataract laser surgery with a specialist. For the first time in three years, she was able to see Christmas lights. John also saw a specialist who was able to treat his eye issues. Both are now able to drive.
