Alanola Health Services uses the MD Society for Sight for all of the employee health fairs we coordinate in the Greater Balitmore Area. The MD Society For Sight provides FREE vision screenings and glaucoma screenings at our events. Not only are they knowledgable in thier field of services, but they conduct themselves in a manner worthy of recognition. I hope to see them at many future events.

We have had the privilege of knowing this organization for almost a year. They have been instrumental in helping our clients provide a vital service to their employees - screening for glaucoma. At each health fair, their table is busy from start to finish, and several people who didn't know they had glaucoma have been identified. Getting additional attention for that can really help them improve their quality of life and seek treatment soon enough to make a difference and possibly save their eyesight. This is a great organization that delivers a valuable service. We appreciate their commitment to helping people protect their sight.

The Maryland Society of Sight is an excellent non-profit organization with a clear mission to preserve sight. Audrey Novak personally assisted me to learn more about vision screening when I was a new elementary school nurse. She then presented this information to all of our nurses and has been available to consult with us as needed.
