Give Sight 2017

This season of giving Ankeny Family Vision Center wanted to give back to the community and Unite to Give Sight was born. AFVC was able to see 20 patients and give away 11 pairs of glasses to children and adults! We hope to continue the gift of sight every year to deserving families across the community.

Provide sight to a child. Without glasses, this little one was falling behind in both gross and fine motor development, and the visual cortex (back part of the brain) has not been stimulated appropriately causing delays in neurological development.  Because we caught this so early this child will be caught up to speed in no time! 

Give a young child glasses to keep their eye uncrossed.  This too will allow for appropriate visual development. 

Helped a school-age child see!  See not only the board at school but anything greater than 24 inches in front of them.

Provide several adults with progressive lenses adding clarity to their days.

Let a whole family know that someone cares. Two young children will now be able to concentrate on both near and distant tasks preventing delays in learning.
