Sight Day is geared towards kids who did not have or, did not pass, an eye screening this year but no child will be turned away!

Registration takes place from 8:30am to 1:00pm at Jefferson Alumni Hall, 1020 Locust Street and features free eye screenings, free eyeglasses (if needed) a health fair, free books, snacks and more!

No health insurance? No problem! All children are welcome. Walk-ins only, no appointment is needed! We do suggest families arrive early.  Did we mention this is a FREE day of eye care?
