Kids Vision for Life Performs 200 Screenings During "Kids Vision Fest"

Kids Vision FestKids Vision for Life (KVFL) performed screenings on 200 students in the Ferguson-Florissant School District on November 5, 2014 as part of the first annual "Kids Vision Fest." Students who did not pass the screenings were given a free pair of eyeglasses. Many of the students received their glasses the same day, after they were made in the mobile lab on-site!

The 200 students selected for screenings were all given exams earlier in the school year. Students who do not pass the exams are referred for a screening.

ARCHS and its partners Essilor Vision Foundation, Inc., Crown Vision Center, and University of Missouri-St. Louis School of Optometry (mobile van) provide free eye services to children in grades K-6 at Saint Louis Public Schools and other area schools.
