Boston Kids Enjoy Free Davis Vision Screenings
Date:4/1/2008

Boys & Girls Club, New England Patriots Co-Host Health Clinic

PLAINVIEW, N.Y., April 1, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- Some came by bus. Others walked, and still more were driven by their parents. But all 124 children ages 6 through 18 who attended Davis Vision's recent screening clinic near Boston came away smiling, with either a thumbs-up vision evaluation or a voucher for free follow-up eye care. Some also left with sunglasses and other giveaways, including an autographed New England Patriots jersey that one lucky child won in a raffle.

This was no ordinary medical checkup, which many children approach with trepidation. The setting for this event, co-sponsored by the Patriots and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Boston, was a familiar location well loved by the kids -- the Jordan Boys and Girls Club in Chelsea, MA -- and "the atmosphere at the event was amazing," according to Michelle Perez, the Jordan Center's director of operations.

"The children were excited, and the representatives from Davis Vision's Cambridge Eye Doctors and the Patriots were enthusiastic and very engaged with the children who participated. Everyone really enjoyed the day," said Perez. Tom Rosa, Davis Vision's senior vice president, Store Operations and Marketing, agreed, adding, "All of our associates were thrilled to participate in such a great event."

Good vision is essential for children's physical and intellectual development and can be ensured only through regular comprehensive eye examinations. "A comprehensive eye examination can diagnose not only the refractive errors that may impede a child's development, but also such childhood eye disorders as amblyopia, which can cause irreversible vision loss if it is not treated," said Joseph Carlomusto, Davis Vision's president and chief executive officer. "Poor vision affects academic performance; however, many families cannot afford to have their children examined by an eye care professional."
