Quarterly KU Eye Lions Vision Clinics
KU Eye Lions Club is made up of KU Eye physicians, residents and staff. Together, we hold quarterly free vision clinics for those who are uninsured and cannot otherwise afford eyecare, as identified by other Lion Clubs or agencies/healthcare providers. For those who qualify and on a case-by-case basis, we also provide free or discounted surgeries at our KU Eye Surgery & Laser Center, which is an ambulatory surgery center.
In an effort to address our limited financial resources and increasing patient demand for services, we do ask that folks go through/check with Kansas City Free Eye Clinic, Safety Net Clinics, and Metro Care (Missouri) and Wy Jo Care (Kansas) before referring to us directly. We assist with their clients/patients as well, through our regular clinics. Other agencies that may be able to assist and/or are resources include Cover KC, Community Health Council of Wyandotte County, EyeCare America, eAudiobooks through the Johnson County Library and the Assisted Living Research Institute site.
We gratefully accept tax deductible 501c3 donations to further our efforts at helping the underserved population receive the vision care they need! You can easily donate through PayPal.
