As part of the study being conducted through the support of Dr. Evan Silverstein and VCU, Conexus has begun the delivery of eye exams and glasses through the VSP mobile vision clinics. Over the next few weeks, volunteer doctors will lend their services to Conexus and the students at Chesterfield County schools to provide free eye exams and glasses to those students who were found through the screening process to need a follow-up eye exam.
The students couldn’t be more excited about the idea of getting glasses (so many for the first time) and we couldn’t be more excited to have the opportunity to be part of such an amazing team. Conexus extends a huge thank you to VSP techs, Lori and Kim for spending two weeks away from their home in California to help support our program here in Virginia, and also to our volunteer doctors who are pushing the envelope daily to see as many students as possible. We truly have some of the best partners and volunteers!!
