When we see better, we live better.
Vision loss robs people of their independence, mobility and quality of life. Normal effects of aging, family history, occupational, and environmental factors can all contribute to vision issues. More than 50,000 people lose their sight each year, yet half of all blindness can be prevented.
That’s why we provide vision screenings for thousands of adults in Northeast Florida annually to determine if they have a need for corrective eyeglasses, to detect potential vision problems, and to provide referrals to set up a comprehensive vision exam with a doctor. Additionally, we provide access to vision care services for qualified individuals through a special cooperative with a growing network of local eye care professionals who volunteer their time to provide services for the uninsured and underserved in our community.
When someone receives the gift of clear sight, they can be more productive and successful at work, at school, and/or in life. Simply put, when we see better, we live better.
We provide vision screenings for thousands of adults annually to determine if there is a need for corrective eyeglasses and to detect potential vision problems.
If a vision issue is detected during a screening, our trained screener will refer our client to visit an eye care professional to obtain a comprehensive eye exam.
