During the Month of May, Saint Francis Veterinary Center of South Jersey is pleased to offer complementary eye examinations for all Service Animals in the region.
The 7th annual ACVO sponsored National Service Animal Eye Exam event will provide a free screening-wellness eye exam to Service Animals including those who provide the following services: guide, hearing assistance, drug detection, police/military, search and rescue, therapy, and those assisting people with disabilities other than blindness.
With this program, we hope to help prevent and/or identify problems that may affect Service Animals’ sight.
- Registration will be open during the Month of April via the National Service Dog Eye Exam program website: www.acvoeyeexam.org. We encourage all handlers of Service Animals to make a note in their calendars to make an appointment once registration begins.
Over 15,000 Service Animals have received these free screening exams over the past five years, and the Department of Ophthalmology at Saint Francis is very pleased to participate in 2014.
