Mark your calenders… on December 23, the 18th annual Kid’s Day will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Eyeglass Factory, 1 S. Milpas St. Kids Day is highlighted by the Right to Sight program, which provides free sight restorative surgery, eye exams, and eyeglasses to thousand of disadvantaged individuals at home and abroad.
Collaborative partners in the effort to provide free eye care to local community members include Surgical Eye Expeditions (SEE), Lions Sight & Hearing Center, and several other local non-profit organizations who screen their clientele and refer those in need of assistance. Glasses will be donated by Rick Feldman of The Eyeglass Factory.
Since this program began, it’s estimated that more than a million dollars in eye care has been donated to needy individuals in our community. Kid’s Day is a year round initiative—non profits collaborating to meet the eye care needs of kids, veterans, homeless and anyone if a financial situation.
