Gift of Sight

This is a past event.

The Gift of Sight is the UAB School of Optometry's annual holiday charity event, where free comprehensive eye exams and free glasses are provided for the un-insured/underserved low income communities, including those who reside in homeless shelters, outreach centers, and anyone else who struggles daily just to make ends meet but fall within the government poverty guidelines. For this community event the UAB School of Optometry opens its two locations of UAB Eye Care, our clinical arm, and partners with VSP Insurance to ensure that those who need vision care but can't afford it get the quality eye care they desperately need. All applicants must be pre-approved prior to the event.
