Eyenstein Goes to Chicago
Transitions Optical, in partnership with VSP Vision Care, will bring a 40-foot, state-of-the-art mobile vision clinic, nicknamed "Eyenstein," to the Chicago area this week to provide hundreds of students with free eye exams and if needed, prescription eyeglasses. In addition, mobile literacy program Bess the Book Bus will also be providing the students with brand new, free books to help encourage a love for reading and also reinforce the connection between healthy vision and reading and learning. Prequalified students from Guggenheim Elementary will receive a visit from Eyenstein and Bess today, followed by Morgan Elementary (April 11), Richmond Elementary (April 12), and Central Elementary (April 13). While onboard Eyenstein, students will receive a free, comprehensive eye exam by a VSP doctor and if prescription eyeglasses are required, they can choose eyeglass frames right there onboard the clinic that will be fitted with customized Transitions adaptive lenses, donated by Hoya Vision Care, to help reduce glare and block 100 percent of harmful UV radiation.
