EyeCare4Kids wrapped up its free vision screenings in the Salt Lake metro area on Wednesday, April 26, with an event at the Sprague branch of the Salt Lake Library.

Volunteers helped trained eye care workers provide free vision screenings, which included a basic vision test and eye health check, and information as needed for follow-up care.

EyeCare4Kids provides professional eye care to low-income, visually-impaired children and underserved families. The organization has helped more than 400,000 receive exams, information and glasses, when needed, in several Western states. The group also has several mobile clinics that travel through Utah, Arizona and Nevada.
