Volunteer program offering free eye exams and glasses for public school students

A volunteer program of the University of Nebraska Medical Center’s College of Public Health has been performing free eye exams and providing free glasses to children from Central Park Elementary School in Omaha from a OneSight Vision Van parked out front. The eye exams out of this van include eye charts to check visual acuity and devices to measure internal eye fluid pressure and needed correction.
