Mobile vision clinic offers free eye exams and glasses to those who need them

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- If you haven't been to an eye doctor in a while because of the cost, now is your chance to go thanks to a mobile vision clinic.
As part of a ten state tour, VSP Global will spend two days in Louisville.
Doctors will provide free eye exams and glasses to adults and children who need them.
Organizers say getting your eyes checked also doubles as a health check.
"An annual eye exam is important because not only for a pair of glasses, but doctors are able to determine whether or not you may have diabetes or high blood pressure because they can see the vessels in the back of your eye," said mobile clinic Operation Manager Lori Fanning.
The clinic will be at the Family Health Center on East Broadway from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday.
Appointments are first come first served.
