Give Kids Sight Day
Uninsured and underinsured Philadelphia children can get their eyes checked for free on “Give Kids Sight Day.”
Public Citizens for Children and Youth and Eagles Youth Partnership have teamed up with Wills Eye Institute for Give Kids Sight Day on Saturday.
Since 80% of what children learn is based on what they see, the American Optometric Association with other health professionals has endorsed comprehensive eye exams as key to school readiness.
Some children got free eye exams and free glasses at Wills Eye Institute.
Parents whose Philadelphia school children need glasses can get them a free checkup, and up to two pairs of glasses this Saturday, at a Wills Eye Institute sponsored, “Give Kids Sight Day.”
