The Dallas Morning News: Garland ISD Offers Free Eye Exams

In The News
October 2, 2020

In partnership with the Essilor Vision Foundation, the district is offering the service to qualifying students.

Some students in Garland Independent School District will be able to receive free eye exams in October as part of a partnership between the district and the Essilor Vision Foundation, a Dallas-based nonprofit organization.

This news was originally published in The Dallas Morning News.

To be eligible, students must not have medical insurance that covers vision exams or glasses (Medicaid or CHIP is OK) and must participate in free or reduced-price lunch programs at school.

Referrals are not required, the district said on its website, but students or their guardians will need to register at one of the four clinics where the exams will take place throughout October.

The exams will be Oct. 6 at Webb Middle School, Oct. 13 at Handley Elementary School, Oct. 20 at Bradfield Elementary School and Oct. 27 at Pearson Elementary School.

For more information, visit the district’s website.

The exams are one of Garland ISD’s many programs geared at helping students in need of assistance.
