We hope everyone had a fun, safe, and warm Halloween! We took our mobile unit to Rivercrest Elementary. Out of 9 total kids, 7 needed glasses. So glad we were able to meet their needs; it makes such a difference in a child’s confidence, performance, and conduct when he or she can see clearly! Check out a couple of our patients below.
We are excited to expand our program with the resources at the Southern College of Optometry! SAVE and SCO are merging so that we can further our program, and ensure more kids get the eye care they need! The transition is going to take some time, but you may notice little changes here and there. How we operate will stay the same, but eventually our mobile unit will have a new name instead of “SAVE”. We will keep you informed of the changes as we solidify these details.
Have you ever heard of a “progressive dinner”? Well, we currently have a “progressive” eye clinic in the Achievement School District. This clinic travels from 1 school to another, and sets up equipment in the building. They provide comprehensive eye exams and fit for glasses if needed. Our mobile unit, providing the same services, will be accompanying this clinic, so we can serve more kids!
I am personally thrilled at these improvements, and look forward to working with all of you this year!
We had a fun time at Corning Achievement’s Open House night.
