Free Vision Screening for Y Campers

Throughout this summer, children at some YMCA of Metro Atlanta summer camps will be getting a free vision screening. We are partnering with Georgia Lions Lighthouse Foundation and Kia to provide vision checks at 8 camps. If a child fails the vision screening, they will receive a referral and voucher to get glasses and another eye exam.
