Free Eye Exams Event Coming Up - Parent/Guardian Consent Required

Vision to Learn Mobile Eye Exam Van A vision screening was recently given at your child's school, indicating that your child may have difficulty seeing.

Vision To Learn, a mobile eye clinic that provides free eye exams and free eyeglasses, is coming to your school February 19, and February 21-22 and can help your child's vision.

Since 80% of children's learning is obtained through vision, when children can see well they can be more successful at  school. 

Here's how the program works:

  1. Send your signed consent form back to school/organization, giving Vision To Learn permission to examine your child's eyes.
  2. The Vision To Learn mobile clinic will arrive at the school and a representative will take your child to our bus to be examined by an Optometrist and Optician
  3. If needed, the doctor will prescribe the correct eyeglasses lens for your child. Children choose frames they like and get fitted for glasses.
  4. Children choose frames they like and get fitted for glasses.
  5. In 2-3 weeks, eye care professionals will return to the school/organization to deliver your child's eyeglasses and make sure they fit correctly.
