Since 1996, the Eagles Eye Mobile has worked to make comprehensive vision care accessible to under- and uninsured children in the Greater Philadelphia area. In Philadelphia alone, an estimated 60% of public school children (approximately 14,000 children) that fail their school nurse's state-mandated vision screening do not receive the vision care they need. The Eagles Eye Mobile offers these children eye exams, prescription eyeglasses, and follow-up care from an ophthalmologist, all at no cost to children or their families.
