Restoring vision and hope for over 20 years

“Cheers to 20 Years” was the theme of the annual meeting and awards presentation for Vision Is Priceless. The nonprofit, based at St. Vincent’s HealthCare, Riverside, shared its major accomplishments for the past year with board members, volunteers and donors June 9 at the Haskell Building.

The Children’s Program screened over 36,000 children at 462 schools during 2015-2016, and held vision education and screenings at three locations in a partnership with the Jacksonville Jaguars. The partners also held Jaguars Vision Days at Clara White Mission; the Adult Program provided nearly 3,000 screenings for low-income adults and referred over 2,400 eye exams. Vision care services were also provided for 509 low-income and uninsured children and adults, including 19 surgeries.

Eight awards were presented, recognizing individuals and organizations for participation in sight-saving programs, leadership, volunteerism and public awareness.
