Our office culture has always included engaging in, being a part of, and trying to better our community. In light of these goals, 20 years ago, we created the 20/20 Vision Foundation, a service organization designed to promote eye health for those who may not have access to affordable care on their own.
In 2018 our doctors performed more than 150 in-office exams for students from many of the major school districts as well as people referred by advocacy agencies such as SafeHome and Health Partnership. Our mobile unit visited five area schools, a rescue mission, and a community center. During these mobile visits, our doctors performed almost 300 free examinations, and our volunteers dispensed over 290 pairs of free eyeglasses.
All of our 20/20 Vision Foundation exams are provided at no charge because we believe that seeing well is a fundamental right for all people, not a luxury based on income or living situation. We’re proud of our contributions to our community, and we look forward to continuing to serve our community. Through the first quarter of 2019 we've served 186 of our neighbors!
OUR LATEST VISIT
We were blessed to serve Kansas City's homeless population through Tom's Mission at the Kansas City's Rescue Mission. We performed exams and provided glasses for almost 40 Kansas Citians. Thanks to all who came out to make this event a success.
HOW IT WORKS.
Then, our volunteers head out into the community to perform eye exams and deliver glasses.We also will perform donated exams and provide glasses in to those in need from our offices.
IS THIS NEW?
Heck, no. We’ve been serving our community in this capacity for more than 20 years.
We just thought you’d like to know your purchase provides a great service.
