Mission Statement

The Kansas City Free Eye Clinic aims to eliminate the lack of access to visual healthcare in underserved populations by providing comprehensive eye exams with corresponding treatments. Our mission is to protect sight by increasing community awareness, uniting eyecare professionals, and acting as a center for hands-on education for students interested in eyecare.

Description

Founded in 2008, The Kansas City Free Eye Clinic provides accessible eye care to Kansas City’s uninsured and underinsured. The first of its kind locally, the Eye Clinic is a nexus between concerned health professionals, organizers, and patients in the community. The aim is to provide a broad range of vision services such as refractory correction, cataract removal, and glaucoma treatment. The Kansas City Free Eye Clinic complements the numerous free health clinics in Kansas City.

As an entirely college student-run organization, Kansas City Free Eye Clinic operates on generous donations of time and money of those in the Kansas City area.
