We are a non-profit organization that reaches out to all of our neighbors in Westmoreland County offering this free vision screening for children 3-6 years of age.
If you are a daycare or an organization that has children ages 3-6 years of age, we would love the opportunity to come to your place of business and do our free vision screenings.
