More Discount Eyeglasses - this time in the Golan

--- Retrieved from ---

Residents of Far Northern Israel - it's back! Here's your chance to get a really affordable eye exam and glasses if you missed it in Karmiel a few weeks ago!

This Friday, February 17, 2017 you have another chance to get subsidized eye exams and glasses, this time in the Golan. You'll be able to get a pair of glasses - frames + lenses for just 100 shekels! There is an option to have this fee waived in case of need. Please send a text to 052-4701380 to request a waiver.
The event will take place at Mercaz Tze'irim in Katzrin
(Library building, rear entrance). It's sponsored by "Pitchon Lev" and "Ezra Ba'Re'iyah".

Eye exams are available from 10am - 3pm

Hope this helps some of you out there! There's been a lot of discussion about the cost of glasses lately.
I'm sure there will be similar programs in other towns - please let me know if you know of any!

    1. I really don't know. I think if they receive requests for a repeat (at the number in the post) specifically in Katzrin it is possible they'll come back. Fridays are tough!
