Davis Vision, United Concordia Dental and The Pittsburgh Pirates Team Up to Provide Free Dental and Vision Screenings

June 29 Event at PNC Park Targets Pittsburgh Children

PITTSBURGH, June 22 /PRNewswire/ -- A partnership between Davis Vision, United Concordia Dental and the Pittsburgh Pirates organization began several years ago, but this year it will have an even greater impact on the community as Pennsylvanians and the nation struggle with the uncertainty of a faltering economy, job loss or the loss of health benefits.

Children in need of follow-up services after the initial screening will receive a voucher for a complimentary eye examination and a free pair of eyeglasses from Davis Vision's Total Vision Care retail store, 120 Fifth Avenue Place, Pittsburgh.
