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!
