Date:3/11/2009

New Relationship Provides Eye Exams and Eyeglasses to Students in Need

WASHINGTON, March 11 /PRNewswire/ -- On Thursday, March 12, Hour Eyes, Davis Vision and the Neediest Kids / Bridge to Success organization will announce a new partnership which will provide eye exams and eyeglasses to students in need who do not have the resources to pay for such exams and eye wear.

Following a successful "pilot project" which has already provided exams and services to nearly 200 children in need, additional details about the expanded partnership will be detailed at a public event at the 1775 K Street Hour Eyes location. Nineteen Washington, D.C. area Hour Eyes vision retail stores through this new relationship will be providing screenings, eye exams and eyeglasses to students in need.

"By evaluating the vision and eye health of those in need, we can initiate care immediately and help to correct or prevent conditions that might negatively affect a person's vision or general health," said Laura Dyer, Davis Vision's assistant vice president, Community Outreach & Media Relations. "Davis Vision reaches out on an ongoing basis to the communities we serve to help those in need access proper vision care, and our new relationship with the Neediest Kids / Bridge to Success organization will help us to do just that by offering services and eyeglasses."

Hour Eyes will provide exams and eyeglasses at no charge to students identified through the Neediest Kids / Bridge to Success network of school systems. Students are identified by their school professionals -- social worker, teacher, counselor, nurse, or principal -- and, school professionals must request these services from their respective school systems. The program serves eight area school districts, including:

  • Alexandria, VA
  • Archdiocese of Washington
  • Arlington County, VA
