FOR HELP WITH VISION SERVICES:
(1) The Lion's Eye Clinic can be found at Falls
Community Health in downtown Sioux Falls.
If you don't have any medical insurance, and your income is very low, you may be eligible for a free visual evaluation. Doctors from seven eye clinics in the community volunteer their time to conduct eye exams at no charge. If these patients need glasses, they'll receive vouchers to that optometrist's office to buy a pair for only $10.
Services are offered from 1pm to 4pm on the
1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month.
Participants are encouraged to go to Falls Clinic to sign-up in advance
of their screening day.
