Eye on the Future


 Established in 1975 by an anonymous donor, the UCLA Mobile Eye Clinic was one of the first programs of its kind, and it is the longest continuously operating eye clinic on wheels. Visits by the specially equipped traveling clinic are made to schools, preschools, free clinics, community centers and agencies that serve the homeless and low-income families. Vision screenings and eye exams are also provided at health fairs organized by medical students, undergraduate clubs, governmental offices, nonprofit organizations and churches.

For more information, go to the UCLA Mobile Eye Clinic website.
