The Davis Vision evaluation was the first eye screening that many of the attending children had ever experienced, and 46 of them were in need of corrective eyeglasses and follow-up care. Every child who did not pass the vision screening is being scheduled for a free follow-up eye examination and free prescription eyeglasses at a local Cambridge Eye Doctors office.
"Unfortunately, many of these kids may not have received the needed vision correction in a timely manner if it hadn't been for the screening," said Rosa. "Our hats are off to the Jordan Boys and Girls Club organization for helping to make these positive outcomes a reality."
"We strive to be a valuable community resource, and relish any opportunity to provide our members with medical care and other needed services," said Josh Kraft, executive director for the Jordan Boys and Girls Club.
Davis Vision has a long history of involvement in local community outreach programs. To follow the great success of its vision screening clinics sponsored throughout 2007, the company has scheduled a full slate of clinics for 2008. Screenings are planned for Buffalo, NY; Pittsburgh, PA; Harrisburg, PA; Carlisle, PA; and Houston, TX, as well as various YMCA locations nationally. More screening clinics will be added to the 2008 schedule in the months ahead.
