WCBA remains committed to educating the communities of Westmoreland and Indiana Counties about eye disease, damage prevention and detection.  The WCBA Prevention of Blindness Program works with both children and adults to detect vision problems such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism, amblyopia, and strabismus. Though the screenings are not a substitute for a comprehensive eye exam by an eye care professional, persons who fail any portion of the WCBA preliminary screening and/or their guardians are notified of the results and encouraged to seek the advice of an eye care professional.
