Glasses4Scholars Mobile Health Clinic

Organization: Prevention of Blindness Society

Glasses4Scholars provides eye exams and prescription eyeglasses to school-age children in need at local schools and nonprofit organizations.

How does the Glasses4Scholars Mobile Vision Health Clinic work?

1. A child with a vision challenge is identified (either by our host, such as a nurse at a school, or by our screening program).
2. The child is examined by a volunteer licensed eye doctor on-site at the host location.
3. If the prescription requires treatment with eyeglasses, the child selects their own frames from our collection. A licensed optician fits and measures the child for their glasses to ensure a proper fit.
4. New eyeglasses are delivered to the host location approximately 2 to 3 weeks later.
