Vision Screening Program

The mission for MSU's Vision Screening Program is to provide a cost-effective direct response to the vision care problems of children & underserved adults who live in southwest Missouri communities. Undergraduate & graduate service-learning students provide free vision screenings to children 6-months of age through adulthood. We conduct screenings at many locations and events including local daycare facilities, school districts, the Victory Mission, Salvation Army, and the annual HOPE Connection event. From the beginning of the program in November 2013 to now, we've screened over 4,000 infants, children, and adults. Out of those screened, 421 have been identified as having "significant" to "possibly significant" eye problems. This is a signature project that continues to grow every semester.VisionScreeningVisionScreening3
