About Project Vision

Project VISION is a mobile screening unit that provides free vision screenings and advocates for the early detection of eye diseases and disorders. The 35-foot RV is equipped with state-of-the-art digital imaging equipment that takes high-quality photos of the inside of the eye in less than 10 minutes. Using the photos, ophthalmologists who review the images can detect eye conditions like diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, glaucoma and cataracts.
