Currently serving Hillsborough, Pasco, and Pinellas Counties, our Youth Vision Program is among Florida’s most comprehensive. We ensure early detection of vision issues in children, providing everything from initial screening to glasses dispensation and referrals for further care.

Youth Vision Program

Our programs offer a range of services including free vision screenings, eye examinations, and glasses for children up to 17 years of age. Operated by experienced professionals, we utilize the Rebion BLINQ screener and Welch Allyn SPOT autorefractor – the gold standards in pediatric vision screening technology — ensuring that your child receives the best care possible.

Mobile Vision Clinic

The Mobile Vision Clinic (MVC) is the centerpiece of the Glazer Vision Foundation’s commitment to providing critical eye care services and resources to children who need it most. As the operator of this program, the Lions World Vision Institute regularly schedules visits for the Mobile Vision Clinic and brings doctors and eye care specialists, along with an on-site prescription lens lab and a full selection of eyeglass frames to schools and communities throughout Tampa Bay. These clinics are not always open to the public, since the MVC primarily serves Title 1 elementary schools, but look for the BIG bus at some community events in Hillsborough County.Vision Health Programs Mobile Vision Clinic.
