On Tuesday October 20th from 9:00a-3:30p the Lions Club of Yavapai County will bring eye care services through their mobile doctor’s office to Camp Verde community members. The Lions Mobile Eye Care Van is a fully equipped eye doctor’s examination room used by volunteer eye doctors to give screening eye exams and write prescriptions for eyeglasses. It is the mission of Lions Clubs to use this mobile doctor’s office to bring eye care services to all of Yavapai County, with particular emphasis on residents 18 years and older who lack the means for, or access to, eye care services.
Yavapai County residents with a monthly or annual income level at or below 150% of the Federal Poverty Level can qualify for free eye exams, eye care and glasses. Guidelines for qualifying monthly income levels range from 1 person per household with an income of $1,595 per month to 8 persons per household with an income of $5,515 per month.
