Transcript Montrose Clinic, UH Optometry Department offer free or low cost vision screening program screening program for people with HIV The Montrose Clinic, working with the University of Houston, is now providing free or low cost vision screening for HIV positive individuals. Through a generous grant from Monte Frost, the clinic was able to purchase equipment for two vision screening offices, officials reported. In a cooperative arrangement with the University of Houston Optometry Department, fourth year Optometry students can choose to complete their student internship al the clinic. "We were extremely excited when the opportunity presented itself to add Ihe clinic as a site to rotate our Optometry interns. Now our students can fulfill graduation requirements and serve the HIV affected community. This is very important since eye care is so important to those infected and hands-on experience is ihe best education for learning how to treat HIV positive persons," said U of H Director of Optometry Service Dr. Segu. The clinic has been offering basic oplomelry services since Jan. 19. "When you are HIV positive you have to make many decisions about your health. Routine eye exams can be a cost that, for many, Ihey cannot afford and thai is why we established this service, "said Chris Jimmerson, vice president of clinic operations. Regular vision screening can detect and initiate treatment for life threatening eye infections such as Cytomegalovirus <CMV) retinitis in immune suppressed individuals. However, persons with HIV do not always have a low-cost alternative for quality eye care. Montrose Clinic, seeing an unfulfilled need, has responded, Jimmerson said. The clinic offers initial eye exam, referral to ophthalmologist if disease is suspected, a prescription for corrective lenses if needed, limited frame and lens selection through University of Houston Ophthalmology School and follow-up exams. In the fulure, diagnosis and treatment of eye disease will be available, but at ihe moment only eye screening is available. Screening, lenses and frames are offered free to HIV positive persons with a Harris County Gold Card (or other documentation of financial need), or a $25 donation is requested for the exam and prescription (frames and lenses available through U of H but at reduced fee) for patienis wtihout Gold Card. This new service is offered every Monday and Thursday I ;00 lo 5:00 p.m. Patients are asked lo schedule an appointment by calling the Clinic al (713) 520-2000.
