Florida’s Leader in Preserving Sight
Screening – Check our Calendar to see locations and times that our staff will be offering services. We screen the eyes of thousands of children and adults each year. Our vision screenings help support the work of optometrists and ophthalmologists. We reach children who depend on good vision for learning, as well as adults threatened by glaucoma and other serious vision problems. Screenings are open to the public without an appointment.
Access to vision services – If further medical help is needed, we assist individuals who could not otherwise afford services through our partnership with physicians and optical retailers.
Education – We create awareness about the importance of vision care for all ages through seminars, vision screening, special events, public service announcements, brochures and our website. Our message is simple… have a regular eye exam.
Advocacy – We work with government officials at the local, state and national levels to make eye health and safety a local as well as national priority. We advocate for sound public policy and adequate funding for initiatives that prevent blindness and preserve sight.
