* For children (up to 18 years old) who did not have or did not pass an eye screening this year.
Last year, in just over nine hours 1,392 children of all ages – up from nearly 1,200 at two locations last year – had their eyes checked during the free event. Nearly 43 percent (595) of the kids were fitted for glasses, the last step in a process that included refraction, auto refraction, and finally a visit to select frames to the Wills on Wheels or two Eagles Eye Mobiles stationed at the Wills entrance.
