Brumback Clinic in Delray Beach hosts mobile vision clinic

The C. L. Brumback Primary Care Clinics hosted a vision clinic for uninsured children on April 23rd at its Delray Beach location. The mobile clinic was facilitated by “Seeing the World,” a local charitable organization that provides free comprehensive eye examinations and glasses to children in low-income areas with no form of health insurance.

Seeing the World’s state-of-the-art mobile unit provides a full eye examination from local optometrist Adam Cherry, OD, who assesses overall eye health as well as the need for glasses. If the examination determines a need for glasses, children are invited to select frames on board the van. Their free glasses are then delivered about a week later.

The children were referred by staff at the Brumback Clinic in Delray Beach. The Brumback Clinics in West Palm Beach and Lantana hosted clinics earlier this year.
