Eye Thrive Mobile Vision Clinic
Jul 8 @ 8:30 am – 2:00 pm
Eye Thrive Mobile Vision Clinic

Eye Thrive will offer free eye exams and glasses in their mobile vision clinic beginning at 8:30 a.m. Monday, July 8 in the parking lot of the library. All services are free of charge, though exams are scheduled on a first-come, first-serve basis until spots are filled.

All children aged 4-18 are eligible for the free exams and glasses, though a parental consent form must be completed prior to the eye exam. Masks are required on-board the mobile vision clinic (they will be provided, if needed) and capacity on-board is limited, so parents and guardians cannot accompany their children on the vehicle.

For more information, please visit www.eyethrive.org or call 314-736-1400.
