Free Eye Glasses and Eye Examinations in Philadelphiaby Regina Hutchings on 03/22/14
Give Kids Sight Day
offers free eye exams
Wills Eye Hospital, the Eagles Youth Partnership, Visionworks, Public Citizens for Children and Youth and others are sponsoring the annual Give Kids Sight Day on Saturday, April 12th beginning at 8:30am at the Hamilton Building, 1001 Locust Street on the Jefferson University campus.
More than 36,000 children in southeastern Pennsylvania don’t have health insurance. What’s worse, because of school budget cuts, nurses are not able to perform annual eye screenings which are often the lynchpin to finding out if a child needs glasses.
If needed, children will receive two free pairs of eyeglasses.
