As eye care professionals, you know the value and importance of eye exams and clear vision. However, for many of our patients who lack basic shelter or food, eye care is not only out of reach, it is out of consideration. KCFEC brings eye care professionals together with the patients who need their care the most.
Optometric techs get patients ready to see the eye doctor: VA, IOP, autorefraction, health history
Opticians help patients choose frames and order glasses
The Kansas City Free Eye Clinic serves people in need of vision care and provides the tools they need to thrive.
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.
