8 News NOW is proud to sponsor Eye Care 4 Kids Community Pride initiative with our partners:

NV EnergyFindlay AutoSouthwest Medical and Nevada State Bank.

Nearly 25% of school-age children have vision problems and many preschool and school-age-children are not receiving adequate vision care.  Eyecare 4 Kids is dedicated to providing professional eye care to low-income children and underserved families.  They have partnered with the Clark County School District to provide eye care for students, with three locations on school properties: Brinley Middle School, Sawyer Middle School and Taylor Elementary School. 

Last year alone, the organization served approximately 15,000 patients.  Additionally, there is a mobile vision clinic that is designed with patient waiting area, pre-screening area, exam room and wall of eyeglass frames.  This unit travels everyday to a different school, community center or various events throughout the valley.  Eye exams and glasses are provided at no charge to low income K-12 qualified students attending CCSD.  They also provide exams and glasses to low income adults for $50.
