MOSCOT Mobileyes Foundation Inc.'s mission is to preserve sight and improve lives by providing free quality medical eyecare and eyewear to New York City’s underserved populations. Mobileyes volunteers regularly visit organizations such as Boys' Club of New York to conduct free onsite medical eye examinations and vision screening tests for New Yorkers who would not otherwise be denied access to such care. For many of these patients, these visits mark the first time in their lives they will experience clear vision – it's truly amazing what a difference a pair of prescription glasses can make in someone's life! It's an honor to serve our community, and nothing beats the feeling experienced more than letters received like this one from Corey, a member of the Boys' Club of New York, Harriman Clubhouse on the LES, whose eyes were examined.
Using portable medical equipment, the Mobileyes Foundation team of licensed Doctors of Optometry and Optometric Technicians sets up a temporary, onsite clinic where they are able to evaluate patients’ overall ocular health and vision needs, and check for a host of medical eye conditions and general health problems. Mobileyes Opticians provide free prescription eyeglasses for patients with vision needs, and Mobileyes Foundation Optometrists provide free prescription eye drops and referral services for patients with specific conditions.
Through these efforts, the Mobileyes Foundation helps to significantly reduce instances of preventable blindness and visual impairment, and specific health problems through early detection. For more information about Mobileeyes or to make a donation, please visit http://www.moscotmobileyes.org.
