Davis Vision Provides More Than $200,000 in Free Vision Care Services
Date:7/17/2009

PLAINVIEW, N.Y., July 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Davis Vision, Inc., a Highmark Company, today announced that its 2009 community outreach program has already provided more than $200,000 to date in free vision care services to the underserved. Free services, including vision screenings, eye exams and eyeglasses have been provided to more than 1,500 people across the country.

"We bring our 'Focus on America' vision program to a variety of communities across the country to help those who are uninsured or underinsured receive the vision care they need," said Laura Dyer, Davis Vision's assistant vice president of community outreach and media relations. "We are only at the midpoint of our community outreach work this year, but it is clear that the tough economic climate we are in has prompted many children and families to take advantage of the free services we provide."

Although children and adults sometimes forego vision screenings and exams during challenging times, preventive and corrective care are imperative for vision health. An eye examination and single pair of glasses can cost over $400 per person. Since the beginning of this year, Davis Vision has partnered with its sister company, Eye Care Centers of America (ECCA), and many community-based organizations to provide services to those in need.

Davis Vision has already sponsored 13 clinics this year in cities such as Atlanta, Washington, D.C., New Orleans, New York and Pittsburgh. A wide range of vision care services from screenings to full eye exams and eyeglasses, are part of Davis Vision's "Focus on America" activities.

For the remainder of 2009, Davis Vision will continue to offer free vision screenings and clinics at locations throughout the country, many in partnership with ECCA. Services will be provided at the company's wholly owned retail locations, including Davis Vision, Total Vision Care, Empire V
