On Thursday, Sept. 28, the Envolve Vision Van will be onsite at the Livestock Exchange Building campus to provide free vision screenings and glasses to OneWorld patients. If the free screening indicates that a patient needs glasses, that patient can choose frames onsite, then the glasses will be shipped free of charge to his or her home address. At this time, all 144 appointment slots for patients are booked.
“We are excited to partner with Envolve to bring this program OneWorld,” Andrea Skolkin, Chief Executive Officer of OneWorld, said. “The cost of glasses is often a barrier for patients with limited resources, so we are grateful for the opportunity to provide free screenings and eyewear to underserved members of our community.”
