About The Kansas City Free Eye Clinic

Location:

705 VIRGINIA AVE, KANSAS CITY, MO 64106, US

Mission Statement

The Kansas City Free Eye Clinic serves people in need of vision care and provides the tools they need to thrive.

Description

Founded in 2008, The Kansas City Free Eye Clinic provides accessible eye care to Kansas City’s homeless and low income. The first of its kind locally, the Eye Clinic is a nexus between concerned eye care professionals, healthcare students, and patients in the community.

Through comprehensive eye exams and glasses KCFEC saves sight and improves lives. Clear vision is an essential yet often overlooked aspect of health that would otherwise be out of reach for our patients. Each year we provide life changing eye care to over 250 patients and rely on over 50 volunteers.
