Glaucoma Test Unit To Give Free Exams A "Glaucomobile" will be in Algona on March 25th and 26th to screen interested persons for glaucoma, the second leading cause of blindness in the United States. Sponsored by the Iowa Lions Sight Conservation Foundation and the Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Iowa College of Medicine, the mobile unit will operate from9a.m to 12 noon and from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Members of the Algona Lions Club will provide additional help. Examinations will be free. Testing requires only a few minutes and is done by appointment only. Please call Jim Andreasen at 295-3567 for an appointment. Beginning at the age of 40, and with its highest incidence in the fifties and sixties, glaucoma is surpassed only by cataracts as the leading cause of blindness in this country. Unlike cataracts however, glaucoma causes permanent blindness. Persons with glaucoma suffer from abnormally high inner eye pressure which persists over a period of time. Damage progresses so slowly that the victim is usually unaware of his condition for some time. Persons who visit the glaucoma testing unit in Algona at the American Legion Building at 117 North Dodge will be screened to detect an increased inner eye pressure which may indicate the presence of glaucoma. Such examinations are made with an instrument called a tonometer which measures the pressure of the eye. I IIIIHIII I IIIIIIIIIIIN llllllllilllllllHIIIIIIHIIUIIIIIIIIM AROUND ALGONA MR. AND MRS.
