Since 1996, the Eagles Charitable Foundation’s Eagles Eye Mobile and Eagles Glasses Lab have been making free vision screenings, eye exams and prescription glasses accessible to under-insured and uninsured children in the Greater Philadelphia area. The program has benefited more than 81,000 children and distributed more than 56,000 eyeglasses. Children of uninsured families are at risk for being left behind in school if their health and vision needs are not met so Eagles Eye Mobile teams up with CVIM twice each year to meet the vision needs of some of our youngest patients. The Eagles have their eyes on the prize this year – and now the kids at CVIM do, too!
School is back in session for dental hygiene students at Montgomery County Community College. This enthusiastic group joined us for orientation to learn about CVIM and to prepare for their rotations throughout the upcoming semester. We wish all of you a successful school year and can’t wait to see each of you back here helping to improve the smiles and oral health of our patients!
