Free Vision Screenings

Posted: Updated:

Envolve and SilverSummit Healthplan to provide free vision screenings to children and families.

The Envolve’s Vision Van, “SeeMore,” is one of several resources at a health fair at The Bridge Church in Reno Friday, June 16 and Saturday, June 17.

SilverSummit Healthplan, Envolve, Care Chest of Sierra Nevada, Immunize Nevada, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northern Nevada, and The Bridge Church are sponsoring a health resource fair at the Bridge Church at 1330 Foster Drive in Reno on Friday and Saturday from 9 am to 3 pm both days.

During the event, everyone can receive a free vision screening. They say if a problem is found during the screening for children, an eye doctor will do a full exam. If the child needs glasses, they can choose frames on site and will receive their glasses a few weeks later by mail. All of this is free of charge.

Adults who need reading glasses will also be able to get those for free.

    A northern Nevada man did not have symptoms of a heart attack. Rather, he felt a little tightness in his chest during high-intensity workouts and he suspected asthma. However, what he learned about his body might surprise you as much as it shocked him. Why Dane Hillyard says working out with a heart rate monitor likely saved his life.
