Project Eyecare is a program that provides complimentary eye exams and eyeglasses to children in need through the partnership of Shopko Optical and the local Lions Clubs within the communities they serve. In 2020, Project Eyecare plans to give more than 800 deserving children between the ages of 5 and 17 a voucher for a free comprehensive eye exam and pair of eyeglasses at a Shopko Optical in their area. With over 80 Shopko Optical locations around the U.S., these children will be examined early for vision and eye issues—an opportunity they might not have otherwise. Ultimately, Project Eyecare aims to create healthier communities by providing the tools that will help shape successful students and athletes. Project Eyecare’s 21-year partnership is a testament to its continued success, and as Shopko Optical continues to grow, more communities and children in need will have the opportunity to take part in the program.
If you know a child that would benefit from participating in Project Eyecare, contact your local Lions Club to find out if they are eligible.
