People in the US fear losing vision more than memory, hearing, or speech, and consider visual acuity loss among the top 4 worst things that could happen to them. Yet too few get their eyes checked until they are already experiencing vision loss or an eye disease.
Vision screenings are offered to Los Angeles community members at no cost. Participants must be 3 years or older. You are not required to have insurance.
Vision Screenings are quick and non-invasive. The screener stands roughly 3-feet away from the patient and holds a device that can check for common vision issues. Typically it takes 5-minutes per family member or less. HOWEVER, children 17 years and younger are screened by a different team, therefore you must make a reservation for each INDIVIDUAL. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
