Give Kids Sight Day
For years, Wills Eye Hospital has collaborated with Essilor Vision Foundation, Jefferson Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University, The School District of Philadelphia, and hundreds of volunteers to provide kids with access to free vision care.
The event, held annually in the fall, is for children 17 years and under from Philadelphia and surrounding counties, who have not had, or who have not passed, an eye screening. Wills Eye Hospital provides this free service despite the insurance status of the child. Since 2009, more than 9,000 children have received free eye care services.
NO INSURANCE REQUIRED!
Vision screenings on Give Kids Sight Day are available by appointment only for children 6 through 17 years old who have not had or not passed an eye exam.
