Local doctors and teams from EyeMed Vision Care, EYEXAM of California, LensCrafters, Pearle Vision, Oakley and Sunglass Hut volunteer to help area students during OneSight Clinics in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Phoenix

CINCINNATI, Jan. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "Exam Week" takes on new meaning for more than 1,200 students who will receive free eye exams and new glasses during OneSight Vision Clinics this week in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Phoenix. The clinics are hosted by OneSight, a vision care nonprofit that has helped 8.5 million people since 1988.

OneSight is working with local partners in these communities to serve children who are pre-screened and referred by school nurses (walk-in appointments are not available):

  • Jan. 27-Feb. 1: OneSight Vision Clinic with Los Angeles Unified School District at Exposition Park
  • Jan. 27-28: OneSight Vision Van Mobile Clinic with Las Vegas Clark County School District at Andre Agassi College Preparatory Academy
  • Jan. 30-31: OneSight Vision Van Mobile Clinic with Phoenix Unified School District at Phoenix Children's Hospital

All students attending the clinics will receive comprehensive eye exams and glasses if needed based on their prescription. Local doctors, technicians and teams from EyeMed Vision Care, EYEXAM of California, LensCrafters, Pearle Vision, Oakley and Sunglass Hut are volunteering their services to support area children and families. The Clinic team will be able to manufacture the majority of prescriptions onsite, ensuring students immediately receive the quality glasses they need to see and learn their best.

OneSight programs in the United States consist of one-week Vision Clinics held in local schools and Vision Van Clinics held onboard EyeLeen, OneSight's state-of-the-art mobile vision center and optical lab. OneSight launched its 2014 Vision Clinic schedule last week in Bakersfield, California, during which more than 400 students received comprehensive eye exams and 96% needed glasses. "We believe all children deserve to see their future and OneSight's mission is to provide access to quality eye care and eyewear in underserved communities worldwide," said Dr. Jason Singh, O.D., OneSight Executive Director. "We are extremely grateful to the community partners, school districts, doctors and industry experts who come together to volunteer their expertise and make these clinics possible."

"The American Optometric Association reports one out of four children has an undiagnosed vision problem," said Lukas Ruecker, President of EyeMed Vision Care, presenting sponsor of OneSight's 2014 Vision Van program. "We believe that all people deserve access to quality vision care to see life to the fullest. That's why our work with OneSight is so important to who we are and what we stand for. EyeMed supported the creation of OneSight's EyeLeen Vision Van in 2011, and together we've traveled 40,000 miles to serve 7,600 students in 21 states. We're eager to expand our support and hit the road in 2014 to help thousands more students in need."

In 2014, OneSight will expand its sustainable programs and conduct 50 charitable Vision Clinics in 14 countries, including 30 Regional and Vision Van Clinics in 18 states across the U.S. EyeMed Vision Care (EyeMed.com) is Presenting Sponsor of OneSight's 2014 Vision Van Program and Pearle Vision (PearleVision.com) is sponsoring Vision Van Clinics in five communities, including Las Vegas and Phoenix.

Note: Students eligible to receive OneSight Vision Clinic services are determined in advance of the clinics by local community partners; walk-in appointments for clinic services are not available.

OneSight is an independent nonprofit providing access to quality eye care and eyewear in underserved communities worldwide. Since 1988, OneSight has helped more than 8.5 million people in 40 countries.
