Eye Thrive will provide free, on-site vision screenings, eye exams and prescription glasses to eligible children ages 4 through 12th grade at these clinics held at St. Louis County Library locations. The initial vision screening identifies possible vision impairment and will be offered from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Children who are identified as having possible vision concerns during the screenings will then receive a full eye exam with an optometrist and receive prescription glasses if needed on board the Mobile Vision Clinic. Special precautions have been put in place due to COVID-19. Permission forms can be obtained online at slcl.org/eyecare or in person at the library branch.
Eye Thrive Vision Screenings and exams will be held on the following days at the following branches of the St. Louis County Library:
