Davis Vision, United Concordia Free Clinic Promotes Children's Eye and Dental Health
Date:2/14/2008

ecutive officer. "Many people are unaware of how heavily a child's development depends on the quality of his or her vision. The fact is, 80 percent of childhood learning takes place visually. Impaired vision can limit not only a child's exposure to information, but also his or her range of experiences."

Millions of children whose parents cannot afford eye or dental care live with untreated and often undiagnosed vision and dental disorders. "Through our free screening clinics, Davis Vision hopes to help those children who do not have vision insurance coverage," said Laura Dyer, Davis Vision's assistant vice president, Strategic Events and Community Relations.

Harlon L. Robinson, United Concordia's corporate vice president, Human Resources and Administration, added, "The pain of oral disease can restrict activities in school and can significantly diminish the quality of life. By bringing the dentists to the children, we are giving every student the opportunity to get properly diagnosed and get the help he or she deserves."

"It was a huge success," said Tom Rosa, Davis Vision's senior vice president, Store Operations/Marketing. "Many of the kids were in need of glasses, and they were especially excited knowing they would get them." In addition to being screened for eye and dental problems, the children took home free sunglasses, autographs from Billy Buffalo and photos of themselves with the mascot. "All the kids had a good time," Rosa added.

Building on the success of their 2007 screening program, Davis Vision and United Concordia have scheduled additional screening clinics for 2008, and expect to add more to the line-up in the months ahead. Another Buffalo-area screening clinic, to be co-sponsored by the Buffalo Sabres, is scheduled for March 11. Clinics are also planned for Pittsburgh, PA; Harrisburg, PA; Carlisle, PA; Lancaster, PA; Boston, MA and Houston, TX, as well as various YMCA locations.
